"'If you want to become my followers, you must deny yourselves and take up your cross daily and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will save it. What does it profit you if you gain the whole world, but lose or forfeit your very self?'" (Luke 9:23-25)

Course: Romanticism and the Sublime

Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley and Keats
JRomanticism

Course postponed
Romanticism (1790 – 1840) was the antithesis of Neo Classicism. It was a movement in art, music and literature that caught the imagination of ground-breaking thinkers and composers. Its swirling shapes, dramatic compositions and bold palette encapsulated the contemporary revolutionary spirit in the Americas and France; moreover its poets in particular responded to this cataclysmic time in history of Napoleonic Wars, Industrial Revolution and British Parliamentary Reform. The Romantic Four - William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Percy Shelley and John Keats offer us some of the greatest poetry ever written.

Their poetics on the Sublime, Nature as Teacher and Guide, the hungers of Ordinary Man, the Exotic Other and the Child became the cornerstones to how we understand ourselves and our world.

Join us in a fascinating four week exploration of Romanticism and the Sublime.
Week 1: William Wordsworth
