+ 1a. American poets as "nature poets": It's common to talk about the British romantics as nature poets, but how about exploring that category with reference to one or two of the American poets on our syllabus? Choose one or at most two (i.e. for comparison/contrast purposes) such poets and explore what characterizes them as "nature poets." How do they represent the natural environments relevant to them and what role do those environments play in the meaning of the specific poems you want to write about? (You could also cover this topic on an author such as Jack London if you would rather deal with prose than poetry.)

+ 1b. An alternative to the above poetry emphasis would be to choose one two poets on our syllabus who are NOT mainly concerned with representing and relating to the natural environment, and to investigate what replaces nature: in other words, if they concentrate on, say, the cityscape, city life, human relations generally, or language or poetry itself, what is their strategy of representation and what seems to be the value in such an emphasis for them and for you as a reader?
