Poets, Radicals, and Reactionaries: Romantic Poetry in Conversation
ENGL 288 FA
This course is an introduction to major poets and themes: nature; memory, imagination, and creativity; the poetic "I"; form and prosody; responses to French Revolution and social and economic change. Focusing on issues
of nation, gender, politics, and form, it places poets in conversation with one another and with broader dialogues about poetics, politics, and society that were taking place during the late 18th and early 19th
Blake, Wordsworth, Shelley, Byron, Coleridge, Keats.
EXAMINATIONS AND ASSIGNMENTS
Four essays (5-6p.); final examination.
ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS and/or COMMENTS
There is almost no overlap between the material covered in this course and that considered in 'The 1790s'--a few poems are read in both courses, but in very different contexts.
This course carries a research option
for English majors intending to
write an honors thesis.
