MSU Wonderlust: Poets of the English Renaissance after Shakespeare
- Wednesday, November 15, 2017 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm
- Hope Lutheran Church
William Shakespeare died in 1616. A group of poets in the generation that followed differed from him in several ways. In contrast with the “smooth” rhythm of Shakespeare’s sonnets, they fashion a rougher” speech rhythm. They vary poetic form, line length, syntax, logic, and rhyme and make use of extravagant figures of speech. Their metaphors are extended throughout the poems, but can change unexpectedly. Their poems are both highly emotional and intellectual. The point of this class will be to enable you to read these and other poems of the English Renaissance on your own. We will take the poems apart only to put them together more knowledgeably.
This four-week course meets Wednesdays from 1-3, Nov. 15 - Dec. 13.
