This period of English Literature is sometimes unappreciated, but it is a time of great creativity in the forms of literature. Poetry, both long and short, political and urban essays, novels, parody, the first magazines, and personal narratives are going through a process of exploration and experimentation. This is the age of big milestones in literature by writers such as Alexander Pope, Jonathan Swift, and Tobias Smollett, but it is also a time when diverse amateur writers came out of the shadows and were welcomed and encouraged. In this fast-moving course, we discuss a wide range of texts in their historical context, and by the end you will have a deeper appreciation and chance to enjoy this wild ride through English literature and history.
