The course may include such representative writers as Coleridge, Wordsworth, Byron, Austen, George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans), Browning, Tennyson, Arnold, Wilde, Joyce, Woolf, James, Lawrence, Orwell, Forster, Pound, Yeats, T. S. Eliot, Shaw, and others. PREREQUISITE: Successful completion of ENG 110 or ENG 160 is REQUIRED.
