ENGL 220: Milton (Fall, 2007)

Syllabus

Professor:

John Rogers, Professor of English, Yale University



Description:

This class is a study of Milton's poetry, with attention paid to his literary sources, his contemporaries, his controversial prose, and his decisive influence on the course of English poetry. Throughout the course, Professor Rogers explores the advantages and limitations of a diverse range of interpretive techniques and theoretical concerns in Milton scholarship and criticism. Lectures include close readings of lyric and epic poetry, prose, and letters; biographical inquiries; examinations of historical and political contexts; and engagement with critical debates.



Texts:

Hughes, Merritt, ed. John Milton. Complete Poems and Major Prose. Macmillan Publishing Company: New York, 1957.

The Holy Bible: King James Version (optional)



Requirements:

There will be a midterm (consisting of ten brief IDs of poetry, prose, names, and terms, drawn from all assigned material up to and including the first 55 lines of Paradise Lost, Book III), a final examination (2 hours long: short IDs and one longer thematic essay, covering the entire semester's material), and two short papers (4-6pp. and 6-8pp.). In addition, students must attend a weekly discussion section.

The papers should be a close reading of a sonnet or a short passage (10-20 lines) from any poem read in the course. You are free to choose your focus, keeping in mind that this is an exercise in mining the riches of a small lode. Two particularly useful types of analysis would include: 1) a discussion of the workings and effect of a Miltonic allusion to a previous text, biblical, classical, or English; and 2) the ways in which Milton uses formal devices (e.g. rhyme, meter, enjambment) to create poetic meaning. All papers should be submitted to the TFs.



Grading:

Midterm examination: 15%
Paper 1: 20%
Paper 2: 25%
Discussion section attendance and participation: 15%
Final examination: 25%
