ENG 262 - Special Topics in 19th-Century British Literature


Special Topics in 19th-Century British Literature. For undergraduate English majors, this course satisfies the Poetry (C-1), or the Period (D-2) or the Theory (E) requirement. For English minors, this course counts as a 200-level English course. This course can be repeated with a different topic.

SPECIAL TOPIC S 2021 - “Tomes of Solid Witchcraft”: Major Women Poets

This course examines how women speak poetically to each other across time, beyond the confines of what Virginia Woolf called the “private house.” We view them as originators of meaning, thematically broaching issues of identity, society, religion, politics, and what it means to be intelligent, articulate, and transcendent of cultural circumstance and restraint. Poems read will be drawn from Charlotte Smith, Emily Bronte, Christina Rossetti, Emily Dickinson, Sylvia Plath, Denise Levertov, Mary Oliver and Joy Harjo.
