ENG 2229 - Medieval Visions and Visionaries

Credits: 4.00
An introduction to medieval English literary texts that chronicle or frame themselves as visionary accounts, including dream visions, folk stories of apparitions, and accounts of spiritual revelation. We will analyze both the flexibility and limitations of writing in these genres, and explore how literary texts about visionary experience - real or imagined - provide insight into how medieval people understood their world, states of consciousness, and the reliability (or lack thereof) of the physical senses.
