01   CAC    TF1    08179   KING   SC-106

In this course we will explore an array of 19th-century poets in an attempt to answer such questions as, What is it that makes a poem uniquely “Victorian”? What are these writers able to accomplish with the poetic form that 19th-century novelists perhaps could not? How do these poems reflect and create the culture and values of the time? The requirements for the course will include one paper, weekly responses to discussion questions, an oral presentation, and class participation.
