EN 323 - Contemporary British Literature (1945-Present)
 
(3 cr.) Devastated by Hitler's Blitz, Britain watched its empire crumble and its global power recede. In a nation of social troubles, British writers began again to write for the public. From the Beatles to the Rushdie affair, British culture has thrived in the face of rapid change by producing a literature of social engagement and aesthetic vibrancy. This course includes texts that speak to these wider historical currents and the aesthetic and intellectual life of Britain since 1945. Students may repeat the course when the topic changes. Prerequisite: one course from EN level 200; Every Other Year, Spring
