Course Description

ENG 175
English Romantic Poetry
Fall

This course is a selective survey of British poetry from 1789–1832, a time of rapid, often violent, political and cultural changes and reaction to these changes. We will consider the intersections of large and small revolutions, turning points, circles, moments, including for example: political revolutions—French and American—and revolutions of manners, science, and industry. We will muse on the ways in which poets of the era engage with notions of the fantastic, the ethical, the self, theatricality, museums, sex, nationalism, gender, religion/spirituality, violence/resistance.
Offered every other year beginning 2018-19.
