ONLINE Movements in Poetry: The Romantic Poets
Who were the Romantic Poets – and what’s love got to do with it? It goes far beyond red rose romance; the tremendous impact of their writing is still felt in literature today. In this four-part micro-workshop series, learn the history of the Romantic Movement through the tumultuous lives and celebrated work of its major poets – Wordsworth, Shelley, Byron, and Keats – focusing on one poet per session. Go back in time with writing exercises that allow you to incorporate their aesthetics, philosophies, poetics, and forms into poems of your own. Immerse yourself in their emotionally vibrant, richly-coloured world.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
