EL2048 - The Romantic Vision
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Arts, Society & Education
Through supported study of some major writers of the Romantic period in England (1790-1830),
this subject examines not just the poetic and fictional styles of the period, but
the lasting changes in attitude of which they were the result: changes in attitude
which have shaped the way many of us think and live today. To understand Romanticism
is, in part, to understand ourselves.
- to attain an advanced understanding of what literary studies involve at university
- to develop confidence in literary-critical thinking, discussion, and writing;
- to develop a full and close understanding of the particular set texts;
- to gain a good realization of what the Romantic era was as a whole and what its legacy
has been in historical and cultural terms, but in aesthetic and moral terms.
