In three weeks, we will cover three authors: Alexander Pope, William Blake, and Elizabeth Inchbald. Their works are very different in form and content (two very dissimilar poets and a playwright/novelist), but they offer fascinating insights into the culture and history of the Georgian period. Along the way, we will look at systems of governance, revolutions, teapots, ships, venereal diseases, palaces, political cartoons, and a host of other concepts and artifacts. Expect fieldtrips to CUAM and Special Collections. Students will write daily responses to readings, give a substantive presentation on some aspect of London life in the period, and can expect a final exam.
This section is being offered in the Augmester: August 6 - August 23, and is restricted to sophomore, junior and senior students only.
