Poetics: Continuing Pastoral

Susan A. Stewart

Back to "Spring 2020" courses

This is a graduate seminar on the genre of pastoral, beginning with Theocritus and going on to Renaissance poems and dramas, the 18th century revival of the form, pastoral’s contributions to Romanticism, the 19th century novel, and current thought on the environment. Our topics include the experience of time, the development of erotic and elegiac forms and the place of pastoral in nostalgic and utopian thought.
