British Literature Survey: 1800-Present (Engl. 56B)

A Listmania! list by Katherine D. Harris (San Jose State University)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Welcome to English 56B! We're going on a journey to see how British culture moved from the invention of the printing press to e-book readers and revisions to canonical novels. Here's the official description (though a bit boring): The Romantic poets began a journey through Nature to find themselves. The Victorian novelists recognized social injustice. The Modernists heralded World War I and its destructiveness. The Postmodernists take all of this, revise, repackage and re-sell to the 20th Century reader. And, the late 20th Century begins to completely unravel all of the artist's copyrights in attempts to create mash-ups and new media reading. In this course, we will read texts that reflect some of the variety of cultural and historical experiences in Great Britain from about 1800 to now. The authors to be studied have been selected for their considerable influence on the future directions of British life and thought and their ability to startle and compel contemporary readers."
