DHS English 10: British Literature

British Literature courses provide a survey of British literature. Students improve their critical-thinking skills as they determine the underlying assumptions and values within the selected works and as they understand how the literature reflects the society of the time. Oral discussion is an integral part of 8 literature courses, and written compositions are required. Representative works and authors include Beowulf, Chaucer, Milton, Pope, Swift, Wordsworth, and Arnold. Detailed analysis of Shakespeare's Macbeth and Bronte’s Jane Eyre provides the basis for in-depth study, analysis, and written work. The course includes grammar text, vocabulary study, and composition instruction
