Introduction to 19th Century British Literature, Gothic Literature
Two semesters of Introduction to British Literature can be taken together to form a full year study, but can be taken separately, as can Gothic Literature. Students must be extremely strong readers and have significant previous literary analysis experience to succeed in these courses. Prior completion of Shakespearean literature courses is strongly recommended.
Some of these courses also have optional writing supplements. This variation is only recommended for older students who are strong writers and are well-prepared for intensive academic work. The readings alone can be accessible to young, gifted readers, but the critical thinking required for writing academic essays on these themes is most often present in older students.
