Auden & Rich

This course is now fully booked. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Barry Wood

The course will be concerned with two of the most important poets in the English-speaking world.  Auden’s work is rich and diverse and includes poetry of great emotional power as well as complex poems of landscape and politics.  Rich rivals Auden in range and diversity and has produced poetry of emotional depth and political acuteness.  Both poets present a major critique of the life of their times with extraordinary versatility, skill and profundity.

The course will aim to show the variousness of their work whilst also providing the opportunity for detailed analysis of key poems.

Recommended Reading:

Auden Selected Poems (2007).  Rich Selected Poems 1950-1995.

Texts for detailed analysis will be distributed at the classes.
