The Lyric as Song in English and American poetry is a comprehensive literature course designed to acquaint the student with representative poems in English and American literature from the medieval period in England to the twentieth century in England and America and to familiarize students with the dominant forms, sub-genres, prosodic and metrical structures, rhythm patterns, motifs, and subjective voices employed by representative English and American poets of the inclusive periods. This study will concentrate on the correlations between sound and sense, and on the music of the verse. This course will provide students with an extensive practical, theoretical, and prosodic background. An analysis of the music, themes, and structures of lyric poems will provide a comprehensive understanding and appreciation of the musical elements of verse and of lyric poems in particular.
