"Masterpieces of Classicism and Romanticism is designed to give students a broad introduction to the European literature of the 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries. In addition to gaining a familiarity with a few of the great writers of those periods, students should develop and hone their skills of critical analysis. This semester, we will devote special attention to familial structures and gender roles in the literature we read."
