Spring 2021

ENGL 341 The Bloomsbury Group
"The Bloomsbury Group" is the title literary critics have assigned a group of friends--writers, artists, and activists--who forged British modernism in a variety of genres at the turn of the 20th century. The name comes from an area in London, near the University of London, where they moved as young adults to live independently and communally; some of the members of the group repudiated the label, but not the concept of an artistic "circle" of friends. We will read fiction and non-fiction by Virginia Woolf, E.M. Forster, Lytton Strachey, and J.M. Keynes; and look at art by Vanessa Bell, Duncan Grant, and Roger Fry.

ENGL 404 Senior Thesis Workshop
A workshop requiring students to share discoveries and problems as they produce a lengthy manuscript based on a topic of their own choosing, subject to the approval of the instructor. Prerequisites: 300 and 403.
