Romanticism and the Age of Revolutions

Susan J. Wolfson

Back to "Fall 2022" courses

The Romantic era witnesses a revolution in literary styles and subjects during an age of revolutions…American, French, and heated debates about the rights of men, of women, and the atrocity of the slave trade, and amid, within, and across this, the vital power of imagination. Our study shall be literary aesthetics, formations, and practices, and consideration of ethical thought and moral values. In conflicts of judgment, and how we organize our lives together, writing is a powerful medium of negotiation and reflection. The syllabus invites you to engage its texts along these lines–in conversations, informal postings, and formal essays.
