Georgian England is a dynamic moment in British history. It covers the literature, life, and history during the reign of four King Georges (1714-1830). It was a time of the revival of Greek classicism’s serenity and in contrast a time of explosive revolutions. It begins with conservative ideas and values and ends with radical ones which challenge conventional gender constructions, social hierarchies, slavery, women’s rights, and tyranny. Possible texts include novels by Austen and Mary Shelley and poetry by Finch, Pope, Swift, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, and Shelley.
