This course examines the British culture of capital through its defining literary tropes. The seminar features units addressing narratives of production, figurations of slavery, and the aesthetics of consumption, among other topics. We study the ways in which British literary culture both reflects and produces the historically specific economic system of modern capitalism. Readings span the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries and may include texts by Locke, Richardson, Wheatley, Equiano, Malthus, Wordsworth, Carroll, Dickens, Marx, and Stoker.
