Lesson Plans – Ms. Ellis' Literature Lab


Students explore the poetic techniques of Old English poetry through later Medieval literature. Some of the most fundamental issues faced by the Anglo-Saxon poets include the hero in a darkening world, the dangers of royal pride, the transitory joys of life, feuds and unavenged losses, the concept of kingship, and exile. The later Medieval literature, in turn, has its own fears, hilarities and preoccupations, including the nature of obsessive love, comedic love, courtly love, the crisis of the transfer of power, the instability of human nature, the ideal of knighthood, the status of women, and gender roles themselves. Works may include "Beowulf," “The Wife's Lament,” “The Wanderer,” "Pearl Anonymous," "Tristan and Iseult," "Gawain and the Green Knight," Malory's "Morte Darthur." Prereq: UCCS R and LPA requirements fulfilled.

In the decades after the Reformation, Britain was roiled by religious and political debates both intensely local and far transcending the country’s national boundaries, at the same time that its citizens were figuring out for the first time what it meant to be a nation with its own distinct language and culture. Sonnets, epics, political treatises, closet drama, and the first plays for the public stage all competed in what became the country’s first public literary marketplace, as economic and political changes helped foster the first English literature and the first conception of the person that we can call truly modern. In this course we make ourselves present at the hotly contested beginnings of genres, categories, and ideas familiar enough to us now that we take them as natural, by reading poems and plays so enduring that 400 years later they are still part of our cultural fabric.

Colonialism and empire, economic slavery, regicide, revolution, one of the earliest experiments with republicanism in the modern world, the development of scientific empiricism and positivism, the invention of newspapers… all of these events and institutions in seventeenth-century Britain, so fundamental to our own culture, not only shaped but were shaped by its literature, which was one of the central public forums in which ideas were ventured and debated. In this course we will read poems, plays, prose, and speeches by writers both famous and (now) obscure, from Francis Bacon and Mary Wroth to John Milton and Kenelm Digby, as a window into their thinking about such central problems as love, friendship, community, beauty, profit and self-interest, and political justice.

Even a quick glance at the canon of modern English literature yields a strange insight—many of the most celebrated English writers of the past century years were actually Irish: Yeats, Joyce, Shaw, Synge, Beckett, Heaney, Boland, to name a few. How does reading these writers as either English or Irish shape the way we understand them? To answer this question, students explore some of the most important literature to emerge in Ireland in the past century or so, an era when Irish writers have grappled with changing questions surrounding what it means to be Irish. In the process of reckoning with what Yeats called the “terrible beauty” of a violent Irish history, Irish writers seized a space on the world stage for their art.
