QU:POLIS Prometheus at Mont Blanc
March 6, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
February 28 and March 6 Prometheus at Mont Blanc: A Study of Percy Bysshe Shelley
Friday (two days) Fee: $8
In this two-session course, we will examine the radicalism of Percy Bysshe Shelley, whose subversive poetry scandalized readers on both sides of the Atlantic. By studying his verse and drama, we will also explore what Shelley’s work has to tell us 200 years after the publication of Prometheus Unbound.
Lecturer: Dr. Michael Keller, Ph. D. Assistant Professor of English, Quincy University
