ENG 274 - Narrating Britain, 1900 to the Present

From Aphra Behn’s The Rover to The Beggar’s Opera to Sheridan’s School for Scandal, this course covers shifting modes of humor, wit and sophistication portrayed on the English stage, while taking into account the social, cultural and political elements driving change in the English state. The course covers the Restoration antimoralist backlash, the theatre’s relationship to the mid-18th-century rise of the novel, the late-century move toward sensibility and the changes to English theatre that arrived with the 19th century.
