Credits (Range): 4 hours
Attribute: 4 HU, WR
From love sonnets to pornographic narratives, from carpe diem seductions to marriage odes, early modern poets employed a dazzling array of literary resources for writing about love, sex, gender, and desire – often disguising darker explorations of skepticism, political transgression, religious defiance, and death. This course will trace the development of erotic poetry in Renaissance England, with reference to these poems’ rich cultural, intellectual, and historical context. British, Pre-1700.
