ENGL 52.01 Whitman and Dickinson

How did contemporaries Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson respond to the challenges of their time, especially the Civil War? Examining their poetry in historical context enables us to see how they envisioned America. The brash Whitman and reclusive Dickinson constructed elaborate personae that express different understandings of self and community. Dividing our time evenly between the poets, we will study the literary devices at their disposal, focusing on the way form influences meaning. Enrollment is limited to 30.
