Kellogg Community College is offering LITE 222: British Literature at the College’s Grahl Center campus in Coldwater this spring.

The course offers a survey of British literature from the Romantic period to the present. According to course professor Dr. Martha Perkins, students in the course will also learn:

  • How Romantic poets made farmers and clouds cool
  • When novels (other than “Fifty Shades of Grey”) were seen as corrupting peoples’ morals
  • How poets established that war isn’t all it’s cracked up to be
  • Why “Star Wars” uses British accents for all the imperial lackeys (i.e., why Great Britain is associated with empires)
  • How Modernists made it OK to each peaches again
  • How women stopped being seen as property, and the ways that was explored in literature

KCC’s three-credit LITE 222: British Literature course will run from 1 to 4 p.m. Thursdays beginning Jan. 19 at KCC’s Grahl Center in Coldwater.
