ENGL 4200 - Romantic Movement in U.S. Lit

Description
This course begins by considering similarities between British and American Romanticism, then it explores the movement's orientations towards nature, the supernatural, race, gender, and the individual's role in society. Key authors for this course include Emerson, Thoreau, Poe, Melville, Dickinson, and Whitman. While the focus will be on careful readings of selected texts, we occasionally consider how principles of Romanticism appear in the arts of painting, music, and dance. LIT. Prerequisite(s): ENGL 1100 , ENGL 1200, and 2000 level or above
