Program

(Romantic) rebels, revolutionaries or patriots?: representing Jacobites from Walter Scott to Outlander.

Jacobitism was a political movement in Great Britain and Ireland that between 1688 and 1746 aimed to restore the Roman Catholic Stuart dynasty to the thrones of England, Scotland and Ireland. A series of Jacobite ‘risings’ (or ‘rebellions’?) challenged the British government in this period, and deeply unsettled British and Irish political/social life. The course will focus on a selection of literary representations, among the many the characterise 18th and 19th British literature. Starting from Walter Scott’s Waverley, in the wider context of Romantic representations of rebels and revolutionaries, the course will also address more recent representations, such as the TV series Outlander.

Bibliography (further material and indications will be provided in class)

Jerome De Groot, The Historical Novel, Routledge
Walter Scott, Waverley. One of the three following editions:
