[Offered in even-numbered years]

Credit points: 3
Year: 2012
Student Contribution Band: Band 1
Administered by: School of Arts & Social Sciences

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.
