British Poetry from the French Revolution to the Death of Byron
ENGL 288
Fall 2022
Section: 01  

This course provides an introduction to major poets of late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Britain--Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Byron, Clare, and Keats--and to issues central to the study of Romanticism as an artistic movement. These issues include: how people experience nature; poetry's relationship to music, storytelling, and visual arts; new ideas about originality and literary experimentation; and poetic responses to the French Revolution and the social and economic change that mark the period. No experience with poetry or with British literature is expected; the course functions as an introduction to both.
