English 21012: English Literature from 1750

English 21012: English Literature from 1750

Course Unit Director: Dr. Noelle Dückmann Gallagher (




            Like Literature I, Literature II is intended to introduce students to a range of key texts and to consider the relationships between them. We focus on works written between 1750 and 2000, and pay particular attention to texts that have been, or are now, identified as belonging to the English literary canon.  Specific texts and themes vary from year to year.
