Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, and their contemporaries.
For SPRING 2001 (ENGL 331A): The tumultuous period spanning between the American and French Revolutions and the Napoleonic Wars produced a group of writers who later became identified as “Romantics.” In this course we will study the poetry of “major” and less well-known writers, a variety of poetic forms (lyric, ode, sonnet, narrative) and dominant themes.
