Syllabi of Courses in Education and English: History of English Literature in the Nineteenth Century


by Frederick H. Sykes - 1904

This syllabus is intended to outline a course of readings and study-introductory to the literature of England in the nineteenth century. English literature in the last century has been so extensive and varied and rich that the student is apt to content himself with the study of particular authors, and by so doing to fail to notice the movements that affected whole groups of authors, the methods that developed throughout a whole era, the relation of literature to the stream of national life. The present course is intended to present a series of studies of the chief authors of English literature from 1798 to 1900 from the point of view of the history of England, the movements of social life, of democracy, science, religion, education, and of the literary schools of romanticism, idealism, realism. This general course will be supplemented by particular courses in special periods or schools; e.g., the romantic school of the early nineteenth century, the nineteenth century novel, Victorian poetry, Victorian prose, which will afford opportunity for detailed study.
