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.

In the winter term 2017/18, we are meeting on Tuesdays, 14-16 (c.t.), room 465.

Annotated Poems

These are some of the texts the project is working on, with our progress into the annotations already integrated. This list and each single set of annotations is subject of ongoing work and updates. Check back for changes! New poem entries will also be posted on our facebook page; so make sure to follow us there.
