Seventeenth-Century English Lyric Poetry

1360X [CRN: 24412]

A close reading of five poets—Donne, Jonson, Herrick, Herbert, and Crashaw—from one of the richest and most daringly experimental periods of English poetry. Since much of the period's lyric poetry is love poetry, we'll be especially concerned with expressions of erotic desire and the passions. We'll also treat the affective cross-affiliations between amorous and religious devotion in the period. Enrollment limited to 20.
