LTWR 308B: English Literature - Berghof

Getting Started

LTWR 308B Getting Started

This course examines the scope of literature by English authors from 1660 (end of the Renaissance) to 2014.

Professor Berghof has assigned a range of topic options which offer the opportunity to examine authors, genres, and cultural themes through one or many works.

Your first step in this process is to find FIVE resources for your Research Prospectus that you comment on as part of the assignment. Keep in mind that these five items are just the beginning of your research and that you will want more to complete your paper.

The other tabs on this page will help you locate those resources, but never hesitate to ask for help.
