Semester 1, 2014 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Barry Spurr
Phone: +61 2 9351 2689
This unit is a study of the meditative poetry of the early seventeenth century. It examines the traditions and manuals of meditation on which the poets drew, and places their poetry more broadly in religious and historico-cultural contexts, and also in the contexts of Early Modern literature at large. Detailed study of writers such as John Donne and George Herbert establishes the framework for study of their meditative poetry and that of later writers.
