Syllabus Description:

The course will provide a lively and wide-ranging introduction to the literature of the Middle Ages, an introduction which will attempt to place texts remote from the modern age in their social and historical contexts.  Students will read and discuss the best-known poems of the Old and Middle English periods (including Beowulf and a selection of lesser-known Old English poems; medieval romance, including Sir Gawain and the Green Knight; and Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales). There will be a mid-term, final, and major term paper.
