This is my research Assignment:
This semester we have had the privilege of covering all three historical eras: The Romantic, the Modern and the Postmodern. For your research, I would like you to discuss the shift in the three periods and three authors who best mark that shift. You are also free to discuss the movement in art, music, the culture or anything else relevant to the three eras.
These are the authors we've studied:
Blake (the lamb, the chimney sweeper, london)
Coleridge (Kubla Khan)
Lord Byron (she walks in beauty), To percy Bysshe Shelley)
Percy Shelley (To wordsworth, Hymn to intellectual beauty)
Joseph Condrad (heart of darkness)
James Joyce (the dead)
YEats (Easter, the second coming)
Virginia WOlf (profession for women)
Mina Loy (Feminist manifesto)
Elliot (the wasteland,hollow men,journey of the magi)
Jean Rhys (the day they burn the books)
Auden (sept 1,1939, Musee des beaux arts)
Achebe (things fall apart)
Philipp LArkin (homage to governement, high windows
Ted Hughes (relic, theology, crows last stand)
Seamus Heaney (punishment, Casualty)
I have written about Joseph conrad's heart of darkness from my previous essay. I am wondering if conrad's heart of darkness could be tied to Achebe's things fall apart and maybe blake or lord byron?
you can choose works and authors I have mentioned above, or you can choose fresh works or fresh authors as long as they all come from our textbook. Our textbook is The Norton Anthology, English literature 8th ed volume 2.
I need at least 3 independent sources (no.com websites, my prof will only accepts .org or edu)
