The growth of religious feeling is a key aspect of the shift from Enlightenment to Romanticism, and the religious change is illustrated here by a selection of texts relating to the Evangelical movement in Britain by John Newton, William Cowper and William Wilberforce who where integral in the campaign to abolish slavery. You will also study the classic text of exploration, Mungo Park's Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa, followed by writings by victims of the slave trade, Quobna Ottobah Cugoano, Robert Wedderburn and Mary Prince.
