The course is only open to DALC incoming Erasmus students.

NOTE: The seminars of Dr Nováková are NOT open to Erasmus students.

The lecture discusses literature and selected cultural developments from the end of the 17th to the end of the 19th
century. In the 18th century section, special attention is given to Augustan satire, the birth of popular literature and
mass culture, the changes of the literary public and the status of literature in the private and public spheres, the
aesthetics of the 18th century novel and the sublime, and the rise of sentimentalism and Gothic fiction. The
section dealing with Romanticism discusses the rise of national and cultural identities in England, Scotland,
Wales and Ireland, the aesthetics of early Romanticism (the art of William Blake and the poetry of Lyrical Ballads),
the poetry and thought of the second Romantic generation and Romantic fiction in Scotland, Ireland and England
with focus on the historical novel and the transformations of the Gothic novel. Emphasis is also put on historical
and aesthetic features of the transformation of subjectivity in the age of Romanticism. The section on Victorian
literature focuses on the characteristic features, authors and developments of the early and later Victorian novel,
on Victorian poetry, the Aesthetic Movement and Decadence. Apart from the transformations of literary genres
typical for Classicism, Sentimentalism, Romanticism, Realism and Naturalism, the lecture discusses the
changes in the understanding of the literary work of art from an imitation of ancient models to the means of social
communication and finally to an independent aesthetic object (“art for art’s sake”) and the impact of these
transformations on the stratification of culture. <br>

This is a supplementary course to the lecture series aiming to develop the more general topics presented there.
Its focus is the close reading and analysis of the canonical works of eighteenth- to nineteenth-century literature
written in English. These represent the three thematic areas described above. The principal objective of the
course lies in enhancing the students’ ability of assessment, interpretation and critical expression. The focus of
the individual sessions depends on the specialization of the instructors: The classes of Dr Nováková map the
development of the novel from its beginnings in the early eighteenth century to its early Victorian forms (from Defoe
to Brontë). The classes of Dr Beran aim to highlight major texts of English Romanticism and Victorian fiction (from
Blake to Hardy). <br>
