General Information

This module is on the core literature programme in the School of English. It aims to give a sound grasp of poetry from the late eighteenth to the early twentieth century (roughly, 1790 to 1910). We study authors such as Charlotte Smith, William Wordsworth, S.T. Coleridge, Walter Scott, John Keats, Percy Shelley, George Gordon (Lord Byron), Robert Browning, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Alfred (Lord) Tennyson, Matthew Arnold, Gerard Manley Hopkins and Thomas Hardy. Teaching involves a mixture of lectures and seminars, and there is a mid-session formative assessment and an end-of-semester summative assessment.
