ENGL 196W - Literary London: Hofstra London Program
Semester Hours: 3
This course will examine both the works and the sites of English literature. In conjunction with our study of the city’s literary heritage, we will read a wide array of authors, from John Donne to Samuel Johnson to Virginia Woolf. The readings will focus in particular on Romantic and Victorian London, with selective works by such writers as William Blake, John Keats, Oscar Wilde, and Charles Dickens. We will also have the opportunity to take advantage of literary walking tours, visits to historic literary homes, and dramatic readings of literary works, among other organized activities. Since many of the readings are closely linked to the visual arts, we will tour a variety of museums, including the National and the Tate Galleries, the British Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
