Brought to you by Odyssey

February 14, 2022 - March 21, 2022
Monday, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM ET

In this course, participants will read, analyze, and discuss much of the poetry – lyric and narrative – and some of the prose of William Blake, William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and John Keats. Rebels against convention and the history of that period, these poets’ lives were as exciting as their evocative and prescient poetry.
