Description:

What do we mean by 'nature poetry'? William Wordsworth, Emily Dickinson, Elizabeth Bishop write at the intersection of nature and culture. Over the quarter, we'll spend three weeks reading and writing about each poet's work (poems long, short, rhyming or not, and some prose), considering historical and cultural contexts and formal conventions as well as working closely with individual poems.
