Product Description
This PowerPoint presentation takes students from beastly monsters captured in the words of Anglo-Saxon Britain's first epic, Beowulf, to the advent of English Romanticism and the emergence of Shelley, Byron, Wordsworth, and Coleridge. (Romanticism begins the next unit.) The four-part presentation introduces the Anglo-Saxon, Medieval, Renaissance, and Restoration/Enlightenment periods in British social, political, theological, and literary history. Major works such as the Canterbury Tales, the plays of Shakespeare, Le Morte d'Arthur, Journal of a Plague Year, and Robinson Crusoe and authors such as DeFoe, Swift, Johnson, Pope, Dryden, Behn, and Montagu from each period are introduced against a background of history to give students a context for an author's philosophy or a work's significance in the cultural, social, and political events of the period. This PowerPoint combines and expands upon existing presentations I have available for the individual periods. It works most effectively as an ongoing four-part narrative introducing each period in an extended, chronological Survey of British Literature from 449 A.D. to 1798 A.D.
