After the defeat of Napoleon, English tourists and artists flocked back to the healing warmth and creative inspiration of Italy. English Romantic authors Lord Byron, John Keats, Percy Shelley, and Mary Shelley spent artistically fruitful years there, with Keats and Percy resting there still. This course will study works by these authors that were composed, conceived, and/or set in Italy.
