Ecopoetry: Nature to Environmn

Ecopoetry: From Nature to Environment
In this course we will read and discuss poems about nature and the environment from a variety of historical periods, cultural traditions, and languages, with an emphasis on modern poetry written in English. As we explore the techniques used by poets to describe the biophysical environment we will also develop critical thinking, reading, writing, and speaking skills, bringing multiple interpretive approaches to bear. We will read and write about poems by Christopher Marlowe, Amelia Lanyer, Andrew Marvell, George Crabbe, William Wordsworth, John Clare, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Emily Dickinson, Thomas Hardy, Langston Hughes, Elizabeth Bishop, Pablo Neruda, Stanley Kunitz, Mary Oliver, Camille Dungy, and others. 3 hrs. sem.
