Courses: Renaissance Lyric (ENGLB311001)

Spring 2012

Class Number: 1139
For roughly half the semester we will focus on the sonnet, a form that was domesticated in England during the sixteenth century. The other half of the course will focus on the “metaphysical” poetry of John Donne, George Herbert, and Andrew Marvell. There will be a strong component of critical and theoretical reading to contextualize the poetry, model ways of reading it, and raise questions about its social, political and religious purposes.
