ENGL 2323 British Literature: 18th Century to the Present is a survey of the great works, authors, and literary periods from the late 18th century, through Romanticism, the Victorian era, Modernism, and Postmodernism.

English 2323 is a reading-intensive course and, to a lesser degree, a writing-intensive course; be ready to do a lot of reading, journal entries every week, and two to three formal literary studies during this semester.

This schedule will be ready shortly before semester start.
