Primary Instructor:

There are few periods in the history of English literature that offer the richness and variety of poetic experience of the "long" eighteenth century. In the world of ideas, this was an age of extraordinary foment and creativity; in the world of literature it was an age that brought new vitality to old forms and a revolution in popular conceptions of what poetry could be. Some of the greatest writers in the English language — including Milton, Pope, Johnson, and Wordsworth — graced this age, and some of the most important developments in English literary history — the novel, women's writing, romanticism — had their origins here. This course will explore the many uses and forms of poetry during this period, with an emphasis on close readings, historical contexts, and the inner workings of poetic language.
