Service Description

In this class, students will explore how the natural world acts more like a character rather than just setting in poetry and novels. We will read and learn about pastoral poetry (one of the earliest types of literature), how science and mythology from different cultures interact, how the Romantics viewed nature, and why nature persists throughout generations as inspiration for many works of literature. Students will read classic stories and poetry with symbolism and themes that revolve around the natural world. We will learn that the sun often represents royalty, that storms symbolize a character's inner conflict, and how nature always outlives industry. Exploring themes such as Man vs. Nature, Nature vs. Industrialism, and the Beauty of Nature will also be a core part of this class.
