Lyric Language and Form: Renaissance to Modern

1910E [CRN: 24315]

Tracing the trajectory of literary forms from the renaissance into the modern, examples will look at stubborn forms like the sonnet (Shakespeare, Berryman, Lowell); soft forms like blank/free verse (Marlowe, Milton, Wordsworth, Tennyson, Eliot); low and nonsense forms (Skelton, Caroll, hip-hop); and the antithetic functions of stanza and narrative (Spenser, Browning, Dr. Suess).
