This course examines Victorian England, which saw major changes in structures of class, ethnicity and gender, an expanding empire, and a revolution in how things were made and who made them. The course looks at innovations in narrative and poetic form at the intersection of what Victorians called “Life and Art,” in essays by Arnold, Pater, and Wilde; poetry by Tennyson, the Brownings, the Brontës, the Rossettis, Hopkins, and Hardy; and fiction by Dickens, George Eliot, and Thackeray, and more.
