ENGL 033. The Romantic Sublime

"The essential claim of sublime is that man[sic] can, in speech and feeling, transcend the human" (Weiskel). What does this transcendence look like? How is it achieved? What resources does it offer us, and at what cost? Authors include Burke, Blake, the Wordsworths, Coleridge, Byron, the Shelleys, and Keats.
