This course will survey the poetry, prose, and drama of the English Renaissance. We will focus on Spenser, Shakespeare, Donne, and Milton, but we will also attend to less-familiar authors, such as Wyatt, Sidney, Marlowe, Jonson, Bacon, Herbert, and Marvell. Topics for discussion will include humanism, court politics, reformation theology, early modern gender, the new science, the English civil war, and colonialism. Requirements: attendance, two papers, a midterm, and a non-cumulative final.
