ENGL 309 - The Poetry of Love and Seduction in the Renaissance

FC ARHU WINT
4 credits
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 fear of death. This course will trace the development of erotic literature in Renaissance England and beyond, with attention to its rich cultural, intellectual, artistic, and historical contexts. British, Pre-1700.
