Poetry and Things: From Romanticism to the Contemporary

ENGL 0202A S01 [CRN: 25283]

Poetry often deals with the private human self, but it also depicts inanimate objects that spring to life in the background. We will study poetic backdrops from the Romantic lyric to the contemporary avant-garde, exploring the aesthetic, social, and ecological modes through which poets have envisioned the nonhuman world. Authors include Wordsworth, Keats, Byron, Poe, Thoreau, Dickinson, Stein, and Beckett. Enrollment limited to 17. LILE WRIT
