ENGL 024. The Revolutionary Seventeenth Century!

This course traces how English writers anticipated, participated in, and made sense of the civil wars that led to the execution of Charles I (1649) and a failed attempt at non-monarchical government (1649-1660). Authors include William Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, John Milton, and Aphra Behn, as well as less familiar but important writers of both imaginative texts and polemics.
