About

The English Literature - Literature and Society - Enlightenment, Romantic and Victorian programme offered by The University of Edinburgh is a fascinating exploration of the ways in which writing in English has shaped or mediated political identities in England, Scotland and Ireland.

Overview

The English Literature - Literature and Society - Enlightenment, Romantic and Victorian programme offered by The University of Edinburgh introduces you to the relationship between literary writing and political and social discourse in Britain and Ireland between the ‘Glorious Revolution’ of 1688 and the end of the 19th century. This is the period of the creation of the Britain in which we live today, and also the time in which ancient British, Scottish and Irish national cultures were conceptualised as a response to radical literary, social and political innovations.

In examining the role of literary writing in this period, you will evaluate the ways in which it changed in response to social and political developments. You will also explore how Romantic conceptions of history, society and the aesthetic are developed and questioned during the course of the 19th century.
