ENGL 250 / ENGL 774: Romanticism and Anti-Romanticism: Yale Romanticists
This guide is intended for students in Professor Leslie Brisman's ENGL 250 / ENGL 774 course and highlights Yale Library resources that students in the course may find particularly useful in their work.
"Because Yale has a particularly rich tradition of Romanticism, I have put together a list of Yale-related Romanticists who have written about the poems we are studying. There is also a reserve list in the Bass Library of works primarily by Romanticists who are teaching or who have taught or who were taught at Yale. (See below, “Yale Romanticists.”) Your obligation will be to show familiarity, in one essay or another, with two arguments from these works or one from these works and one by a non-Yale Romanticist of note. You need not read any of these books in their entirety, and this requirement can easily be met by reading a couple of essays by Yale romanticists on line. The requirement is actually quite minimal: for one or two of the three essays (or all three, if you like), you should show that you have read at least one chapter or one essay from one of these books, or one on-line article on your text that was written by a Yale Romanticist. You are welcome to conceive of your essays as quarrels with the interpretations you find there; and you are alternatively welcome to make your reference to such arguments no more than footnotes. If you have written an essay you are happy with and have not fulfilled this requirement, add an appendix page or two fulfilling this requirement independently. There is no need to distort or reconfigure your essay to "get in" reference to something else you have read. A brief Appendix will do just as well."
