Semester 2, 2014  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: David Kelly
Phone: +61 2 9351 2214


'Romance' refers to both a passion and a textual form, and this course will focus upon the passionate American and the forms in which this figure appears in texts ranging from the classic 19th century novel through to 20th century film and music. We will explore the Gothic and Romantic heritage of American culture and the ways in which this adapted to the pressures of realism and modernization as the American imagination ranged from the transcendental to the popular.
