The purpose of this course is to enjoy the depth and breadth of literature through reading and discussing a selection of poems dealing with the four seasons of England.
We will read, analyze, and sometimes learn by heart several poems on each season written by representative English poets. The study will bring a deeper understanding of the love towards nature and towards human beings cherished by the English people.
