Love it or hate it, everyone can identify a Pre-Raphaelite artwork. But what about a Pre-Raphaelite poem? This new course sets out to introduce readers to the contexts, theory and style of pre-Raphaelite poets such as William Morris, A C Swinburne, Christina Rossetti, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and several less well known poets. Taught through lectures, seminars and including a trip to the Fitzwilliam Museum, you will explore the less well-trodden paths of literary pre-Raphaelitism and discover new ways of approaching and appreciating Victorian poetry in context.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
