Poetic themes: an introduction to poetry in English

This course looks at major themes of poetry: love, nature, war, humour and mortality. We will explore works by Donne, Tennyson, Dickinson and Eliot, as well as verse by current poets and Scottish writers. No previous knowledge of poetry is required, although students are welcome to nominate favourite poems for class discussion.

Please note: there will be no class on the 15th of February. An extra class will be added on. This is reflected in the end date listed.
