Writing Alongside John Keats and John Clare [Deborah Woodard]
Intermediate | We’ll mark the 200th anniversary of the death of John Keats, the English Romantic poet with the most visceral connection to the senses and the shortest, most meteoric life, by writing alongside him and his contemporary, John Clare, who, with his rural background, lived in the world that other Romantic poets just observed. You can expect weekly prompts, read-arounds, and the instructor’s feedback on assignments. Required texts: John Clare, ed. Robinson, Powell (Oxford UP); John Keats: Complete Poems and Selected Letters (Modern Library).
