NOT 2013 Course Description The eighteenth century is often regarded as the moment at which modern literary culture begins. The novel, travel fiction, the newspaper essay, the ballad opera, the slave narrative, the mock epic, the revolutionary novel and the Gothic romance are among the new modes of writing to surface in the period. This course studies their emergence, as well as the revival of traditional forms, in the context of Britain's increasing global power and prestige. Authors include Pope, Defoe, Richardson, Sterne, Godwin, Hays and other key writers of the period. NOTE: Course offering may be cancelled unless a minimum of 20 students enrol.
