In what ways can we consider the English Bible to be a poetic text? How has the English Bible influenced poetry in English? With these primary questions in mind, we’ll read biblical texts (e.g. Genesis, Isaiah, Ecclesiastes, Job, Ruth, Esther, Luke, John, Pauline Epistles, Revelation) and the works of such poets as Donne, Herbert, Milton, Traherne, Crashaw, Watts, Wordsworth, Whitman, Tennyson, Rossetti, Eliot, Stevens, and Hill. American OR British (not both), 1700-1900.
