Shakespeare’s Poetry
Many of us have encountered the plays of William Shakespeare, but fewer of us are as familiar with his poetry as we are with his dramatic canon. In this course, we will set aside the Bard’s stage productions to read and analyze Shakespeare’s lyric and narrative poetry. Over four weeks, we will work through a selection of The Sonnets in addition to The Phoenix and the Turtle, A Lover’s Complaint, Venus and Adonis, and Lucrece. No previous experience with poetry or Shakespearean language is required. The Oxford edition of “The Complete Sonnets and Poems” is the recommended edition. Margo Kolenda-Mason is a Ph.D. Candidate in the English Department at the University of Michigan. When she is not teaching, she researches medieval and early modern literature.
