ENG 295-01 - Special Topic: How to Be an Elizabethan

4 credits (Spring)
This course will focus upon early modern England but especially London, the country’s principal cultural and intellectual center then as now, where almost all the important writers lived and worked. We’ll cover many relevant topics including notions of chronology, the structure of the cosmos, the influence of the planets, the humoral basis of physiology, and the nature of the soul; and we’ll consider the bearing of all this on the character of daily life in London and its impact on various writers.

Prerequisite: ENG 120 .
Note: Dates: March 31 to April 17. Short course deadlines apply.
Instructor: Ingram
