This course will focus on English poems of the 17th century Metaphysical school of poetry. Exploring poetical works by John Donne, Andrew Marvell, George Herbert, Henry Vaughan, as well as Donne's sermons, we will analyze the intellectual currents that these texts reflect. Individual poems will be approached through close readings, analyzing prosody and structure. The poets will be examined within the historical, cultural and scientific context that gave rise to their works. (Counts as an early period requirement)
