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, it 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.

There is almost no overlap between the material covered in this course and that considered in "Romantic Extremities"--several poems such as "Tintern Abbey" are read in both courses, but in very different contexts.
This course satisfies the English Department's Literary History II requirement and the research option for senior thesis writers, and it contributes to the British Lit and Theory and Literary Forms concentrations.
