British Literature (Bob Jones)
This updated second edition discusses the works of almost 70 authors and is fairly similar to the first edition, with mostly cosmetic changes. The text divides works into eight literary periods: The Middle Ages (Old English and Middle English), the Renaissance, Tudor period, Stuart period, the Age of Revolution (Neoclassical and Romantic), the Age of Reform, Victorian, and Modern. Author's works and cultural issues are examined in light of Scripture. This course illuminates such religious developments as the English Reformation, Bible translation, nonconformity, Methodism, and British hymnody. It provides an overview of English Christianity from its inception to the present while discussing important works of literature. A part of this course includes the study of the Shakespearean tragedy Macbeth.Please note that this DVD is listed below but is not included in the Home School Kit.
