    The period c. 1547-1600 is part of the `early modern¿: it is the beginning of modern philosophical,
    political and scientific thought and conceptions of the individual and society. It includes the Renaissance,
    a term which refers to the rebirth of classical civilization and the flourishing of arts and literature.
    This module will introduce this time of extraordinary cultural change and conflict through close reading of
    important authors including Wyatt, Marlowe, Sidney, Jonson, and Donne. It also offers the foundations for
    advanced study of early modern literature.
