English 233. Trans-Reformation English Writing

Instructor: James Simpson
Terms: Spring Term

Mondays, 1-3 pm | Location: Barker 269

English literary history shies away from one of cultural history’s most momentous revolutions: the Reformation. This course looks to a series of discursive areas (e.g. literature, theology, politics) to shape that literary history. We will look to both canonical and non-canonical texts, from Chaucer to Shakespeare; each session will be grounded in a Houghton-possessed book.
