ENGL 34300 Victorians: Vile or Virtuous?

GE-Human Culture: Literature What do you think of when you think of nineteenth-century literature? Perhaps Jack the Ripper comes to mind, or perhaps you think of rich people sipping tea as they extend their pinkies. The Victorian era (1835-1910) was one of contradictions and questions. In this course, we will explore these contradictions through reading prose, poetry, and fiction, and we will decide together if the Victorians were VILE or VIRTUOUS (or maybe both).
