LAPI 822 - Age of Reason, Age of Satire: 1750 - 1800

An examination of the cultural history of England in the last half of the eighteenth-century, focusing on two preoccupations of the day: rationalism and satire. The class introduces philosophic and political documents that justified the American and French Revolutions, and then turns to satire in fiction in the visual arts. The term closes with a discussion of the twentieth-century satire and rationalism, our legacy from the Enlightenment and Revolutionary periods
