Please join us for the second discussion of our Fall 2016 reading series called Reading the Romantics.

We will meet on December 5th from 12:30-1:30pm in Angell Hall 3154 to discuss the first chapter from Tilottama Rajan's Romantic Narratives: Shelley, Hays, Godwin, and Wollstonecraft (2010), called “The Trauma of Lyric: Shelley’s Missed Encounter with Poetry in Alastor.”

The chapter focuses on Shelley’s Alastor and some of the Wordsworth poems that influenced it — mostly the Lucy poems and The Ruined Cottage — in order to further Rajan’s larger claim about a Romantic ’narrativity’ that is, for her, separate from the novelistic, chronological plot structure (although not always excluded from it) and characterized by a certain openness, “worklessness,” and a “constant process of unmaking” that allows Shelley and other Romantic authors to oscillate between poetry and prose.

A light vegetarian lunch will be served. Please kindly RSVP to Ani Bezirdzhyan (abezirdz@umich.edu) to receive the pre-circulated reading materials.

All are welcome to attend one or both events in the reading series.
