ENGL 7729 Woolf and Stevens (Fall: 3 )
A course focusing on the aesthetics of impersonality in Woolf and Stevens, it will, in the perhaps unexpected encounter it stages, also question the categories through which we organize our understanding of literature, especially nation, genre, and period. What is visible in Stevens' poetry if it is read in the context of British modernism, and in the context of modernism's equivocal relation to the Victorian novel and aestheticism? What might be perceived in Woolf's novelistic innovations if they read in the context of a poetic tradition--and in her novels if read as if they were poems?
