This course is an overview of the British literary tradition from the Romantic, Victorian and Twentieth Century. Short Stories, poetry, essays, novels, and plays written by British, Scottish, and Irish authors are studied. Students will become familiar with the linguistic, cultural, and political history of Great Britain through the focused study of literary trends and major authors of each era. In addition, this course is designed to enhance and supplement the research skills and independent critical and analytical literacy skills that students work to develop throughout their English studies at SGHS.
