The Poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins
In this course we explore the poetry of G.M. Hopkins through the lens of the phenomenon of awe. We focus on how awe as an epiphanic and transformative event raises experiential, existential as well as epistemological concerns in relation to Hopkins’s poetry. This will entail paying close attention to the ways in which formal aspects of poetic expression affect how we perceive, experience, and understand poetry in general and Hopkins’s poems in particular.
