Poets, Radicals, and Reactionaries: Romantic Poetry in Conversation|
This course is an introduction to major poets and themes: nature; memory, imagination, and creativity; the poetic I; form and prosody; responses to the French Revolution; and social and economic change. Focusing on issues of nation, gender, politics, and form, the course places poets in conversation with one another and with broader dialogues about poetics, politics, and society taking place during the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

*Remote students in this course will attend separate, mandatory, synchronous class sessions via Zoom. I will make every effort to find a meeting time that will work for all remote students in the course, but it may not be possible to find a perfect time for everyone. English majors who will be remotely enrolled and need to fulfill their Literary History II requirement may wish to consider Prof. Courtney Weiss Smith's courses "Old Poetics for New Poets" and "Circulating Bodies," both of which will be offered entirely online.
