Odyssey: Nineteenth-Century English Romantic Poets, Rock Stars of Their Generation

In this course, we will read, analyze, and discuss much of the poetry (lyric and narrative) and a bit of the prose of William Blake, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and John Keats. Rebels against convention and the history of that period, these poets led lives that were as exciting as their writings. Come prepared to be mesmerized by their evocative and prescient poetry.
