Class Description and Syllabus

 

 

The class is a survey of the literature of the British Isles. We will be studying some of the greatest authors in the English language, specifically how the historical, religious, and philosophical context in which these individuals worked influenced the style and content of their writings. Since you are all accelerated students, know you should know what to expect and what is expected from you.

 

As with your previous literature classes, you will be expected to recall certain aspects of literature and be familiar with the terms and "workings," if you will, of the genres of short stories, poetry, and novels. You will also be expected to read a good deal on a nightly basis to keep up with the class. 

 

One warning: DO NOT GET BEHIND!!! It is my experience, as is sadly shared by a few students, that if you get behind in the reading, you will not catch up. In addition, SparkNotes and CliffsNotes may help you understand what your are reading, but they are not a substitute and relying solely on these sources will result in lower grades.

 

As with most all other literature classes, if you do not read the material, you will not pass this class.
