Poets, Radicals, and Reactionaries: Romantic Poetry in Conversation|
Fall 2008 not offered
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, 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 centuries.
