LITR 340 - BRITISH MEDIEVAL LITERATURE
This course surveys the earliest literature of England, from its beginnings in the Anglo-Saxon past through the medieval period. In it, we will examine some canonical texts (Beowulf, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Chaucer) as well as some less well-known works. While the specific thematic emphasis may vary, we will be reading a wide variety of genres (epic, elegy, lyric, chronicle, riddle, romance, etc.) and authors. We will trace developments of significant ideas and consider the relationship of the texts to the social, cultural, and historical environments that produce them. Some of the earliest works will be read in translation, but the majority of the later material will be read in the original Middle English.
