Home Page for E211

Welcome to E211, British Literature to 1760

Spring 2007 at California State University, Fullerton

This blog will offer posts on all of the authors on our syllabus. I will post two kinds of notes: general and page-by-page. Both kinds are optional reading, but I encourage you to read the entries as your time permits. While they are not exactly the same as what I may choose to say during class sessions (i.e. these are not usually exact copies of my lecture notes), they should prove helpful in your engagement with the authors and in arriving at paper topics and studying for the exam. Unless otherwise noted, the edition used for our selections is Abrams, M. H. et al, eds. The Norton Anthology of English Literature, Vols. 1ABC. 8th. ed. New York: Norton, 2006. Package 1 ISBN 0-393-92833-0. A separate text is Goldsmith, Oliver. The Vicar of Wakefield. Oxford: Oxford UP, 1999. 0-192-80512-6.

A dedicated menu at my wiki site contains the necessary information for students enrolled in this course; when the semester has ended, this blog will remain online, and a copy of the syllabus will remain in the Archive menu.
