Milton & the 17th Century

How to Use this Course Web site

The "index,"or "home" page for EN 348 has three sections that I have reproduced below. The first two are set up as hyperlink tables, and the third section consists of hyperlinks arranged vertically on the page.

     The "course navigation bar" has 8 hyperlinks, subdivided into three groups. The 5 maroon-bordered links lead to information about the course. The 3 green-bordered links lead to information about theory and construction of course Web sites, especially this site. At this point, you might follow these links to gain some familiarity.

     Among the hyperlinks, you will find our EN 348 "discussion group," where class members and invited visitors can discuss self-selected topics relevant to the course materials. As with e-mail, courtesy and tact are expected and are mandatory. These two links are passworded and, at the course's start, inactive.

     For convenience in maneuvering, the "course navigation bar" appears at the bottom of most of the EN 348 Web site pages.

The "information hotlinks" (see table below this paragraph) lead to diverse information about Seventeenth Century background, the authors we study, key literary works, the paintings, and the music. I provide some of this information, but often you will find hyperlinks to Web sites around the world. These sites vary in depth and quality, and you will need to critically appraise their value for your own inquiries.

     One of the best starting points for the Renaissance and Seventeenth Century is that indicated by the green-bordered 17th Century WWW site. Click on it now and spend some time in sunny Santa Barbara, California, visiting one of the best organized repositories of links to renaissance and seventeenth-century studies on the WWW. These include links to anthologies, critical studies, newsgroups, essays, libraries, and multimedia presentations.

The remaining links are reproduced, in their vertical order, beneath this paragraph.

Clicking on "heavenly news" and "hellish news" will reveal surprises that I will change periodically.

The "s/he mail" link is the gateway to our restricted class list for e-mail addresses.

The "i n t e r n e t" leads to the English Department recommended WWW resources. These are Internet resources of many kinds relevant to undergraduate life, work, and pastimes.

Finally, "student projects" is the gateway to hypertext (i.e., Internet) course projects that some students may choose to pursue.
