ENGL 144 - 19C British Poetry

This course will trace the major forms and thematic concerns of nineteenth-century poetry through a focus on the works of three major poets: John Keats, Christina Rossetti, and Gerard Manley Hopkins. We will pay particular attention to the relationship between poetic form and meaning, as well as considering how each poet engages with such issues as history, politics, gender and sexuality, and the representation of bodily experience. In addition to the poems themselves, we will read critical and theoretical accounts of individual poems and poetics more broadly. Written assignments will include a number of essays, some done in class, as well as a final exam.
