Readings: British Literature

This is currently the coordinating home page for student projects in Auburn University's Fall, 1998, English 353, taught by Jeremy M. Downes. Each of the links below explores an under-read text in British literature, provides some useful cultural and historical background, and suggests titles and links for further research. Right now the texts suggest certain aspects of religious thought from the time of the Anglo-Saxons to the English Civil War in English history and literature. Throughout the site, we have tried to ensure full and appropriate citations for all quoted material and images not in the public domain. Since this is an experimental project for this particular literary survey course, the site administrator welcomes your comments and constructive criticism. Student portions of the site have now been taken offline. Contact the site administrator for details.
