This group’s main focus lies on the whole genre of (English and American) poetry. Our students annotate a wide variety of poems, which differ in genre, literary periods, and style. Examples include poems by Emily Dickinson, E. E. Cummings, John Donne, Richard Crashaw, and John Cleveland. Students of this group practice the close reading of poetry, as well as the literary criticism and theory of poetry.
We meet for block sessions on May 14th and June 11th from 9a.m. to 6p.m.. After that we meet Thursdays 4-6 p.m. (c.t.).
There will be an introductory session on Thursday, May 5th in Room 121 of the Neuphilologikum. Students interested in joining please contact me by email: annotating-literature [at] es.uni-tuebingen.de
