Courses: English Poetry from Tennyson to Eliot (ENGLH253A01)

Fall 2007

A study of Tennyson, Christina Rossetti, Dickinson, Hopkins, Hardy, Owen, and Eliot, from In Memoriam (1850) to Little Gidding (1942). The course strives to subvert the convenient opposition of Victorian/modern, focusing upon the poet's role in mediating/exposing the social order, the relation between poetry, catastrophe, and traumatic memory, and the structuring modalities of lyric and elegy.
