Tuesday, Jan. 31st

We looked at some of Sir Christopher Wren’s work in rebuilding London after the fire of 1666.  Then we started watching and discussing Dangerous Liasons in terms of its depiction of the life of the “Great” and the”Rich”.  We are noting how they fall short of the ideals of the Augustan Age, and observing the role of women in the Restoration Period.  This is all background information for the works in the Age of Pope.

We shall continue with the film and Alexander Pope next class.
