8:30 AM-10:00 AM
This course seeks to introduce you to some of the best works of literature written in English. Concentrating on poetry, we will investigate the changing shapes of literary representation over the centuries. One of our primary topics will be the relation of form to content. How do these poems work? In what ways do literary forms shape what they present---and, at the same time, our responses to them? How has literature been affected by changes in society? What role does the speaking voice play in our understanding of poetry? How do various poems wish to be read? These are a few of the many questions we will address in our daily discussions.
