The sonnet is one of the central forms of European and anglophone poetic traditions. Many of the greatest poets have written them – Edmund Spenser, Joachim du Bellay, Alexander Pushkin, Petrarch, Dante, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Christina Rossetti, and of course William Shakespeare. Often it stands in for the whole tradition, an icon for iconoclasts to smash, as though to write one now is somehow retrograde, nostalgic, bespeaking an inability to look contempary times straight in the face. Yet it is only a little song, a small patterned box of around 140 syllables. Can it take the pressure? Is it still alive? Does it sing? This course will look at range of anglophone sonnets from the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, and also locate these in broader critical arguments concerning poetics. Maurice Scully, Wanda Coleman, Elizabeth Bishop, A. D. Hope, A. E. Stallings, Ernest Hilbert, Paul Muldoon, Marilyn Hacker, Gwen Harwood, and Ted Berrigan some of the poets we’ll consider. And of course you’ll also have to write a sonnet.

You can miss no more than two of the classes/assignments and you must also submit a final online assignment by 28 May and 5 June. Please observe deadlines for the online work, as the responses and discussions are dependent on your timely submission of work. I will rarely respond to individual submissions but rather will upload video or text that responds more generally, highlighting the important issues and asking you to look at assignments that have been done well. If you miss more than two sessions (either class or online assignments), then you will not be eligible for a credit. Please note that any plagiarism will result in course failure, and may face disciplinary action.
To receive 5 ECTS, Erasmus students will have to fulfill the requirements above and also write an essay of 1000 words by June 10. The essay should be a critical review of the course (did the course fulfill its stated aims? what would you change in the syllabus? why? etc.).

If you wish to receive an exam grade after you have received the credit for the course, you must submit an essay of c. 3,000 words. Before embarking on this, you must also submit a proposal of around 100 words outlining the essay, with bibliography. Please submit the proposal by June 15, 2023, and the essay no later than August 15, 2023. I do not read essays or respond to work between 1 July and 15 August.
