Highlights of British Poetry

This course will not try to do the impossible—give a comprehensive survey of British poetry from the past seven centuries—but rather provide tastings from a banquet. We'll sample British poetry from the 14th century to the 20th. The course will move chronologically and include works by Chaucer, Shakespeare, Donne, Herbert, Blake, Wordsworth, Keats, Tennyson, Hopkins, Yeats, and Boland. This will be an opportunity for you to re-read some poetry you haven't read since high school or college—and might introduce you to some unfamiliar poems and poets.

John Noffsinger has a Ph. D. in English from the University of Virginia. Before his retirement, he taught English for 38 years at three independent schools in Virginia and has more recently taught No Fear Poetry for LLI.
