“The World Turned Upside Down” This lecture-course on British and American literature of the long 18th century (1660s-1790s) will focus on cultural representations of authorship and authority in the years from the English Civil Wars through the American War of Independence — a century-plus of revolution and (re)creation. We’ll be reading plays, poems, prose, and fiction by Aphra Behn, Benjamin Franklin, John Milton, Alexander Pope, Jonathan Swift, and Phillis Wheatley, the first Gothic novel and the Declaration of Independence, to see how these texts map out national and transatlantic conversations. In weekly discussion sections, you’ll talk and write about the works and reflect on your own writing.
