ENGL 366:

    A course charting the historical movement of literature in the British Isles from earliest Anglo-Saxon documents to the Restoration. The major periods of Anglo-Saxon/Early Celtic, Anglo-Norman, Middle
    English, and Early Modern anchor a survey of representative works and authors (e.g. Beowulf, Chaucer, Julian of Norwich, Malory, Spenser, Donne, Milton). The course emphasizes historical, political and cultural events through which this literature was produced; the development of genres and poetics over time; and changes in language, especially in the ways that English has changed from Old English to Early Modern. (May be taken twice for credit under different subtitles.) Prerequisite: ENGL 203
