Fall ’18: ENGL 575 – Joyce and Yeats

Meets at the College of Charleston, Mondays, 7-9:45 – Prof. Joe Kelly
(Fulfills a British Literature after 1800 requirement)

We will discuss and interpret a significant portion of the work of the two Irish writers, W. B. Yeats and James Joyce.  The disciplinary approach will be historical, so we also will study the Irish political and cultural contexts in which these works were produced.  While Yeats and Joyce were influential figures in the international movement known as “Modernism,” mostly we will treat them as Irish writers.

The course will also help you professionalize your own skills as a researcher and literary critic.   Your grade will be largely dependent upon the final paper.
