ENGL 336 Literature and Landscape, 1500-1800


This course investigates two closely related subjects: English literature’s response to changing ideas of nature and the landscape; and the response of designers of English landscapes and gardens to literature. Material studied will range from Shakespeare to Wordsworth, including both the acknowledged literary greats and lesser-known writers of the 17th and 18th centuries.

Prerequisite: Any 190 or 200 level literature course or permission from instructor.
