ENGL 3604 - Victorian Literature Course uri icon



  • This course studies how literature and culture represent the upheavals of the nineteenth century, including industrialization, the science of evolution, and the expansion of the British Empire. Realist, Gothic, and Sensation novels thrived during this period and people turned to poetry to mourn, to celebrate, to seduce, and to inspire. This literature helped to establish literary forms and social and political ideas that remain influential today.
