Introduction
I'm using this page to deliver primary and secondary texts for English Poetry 1 at UFRN in the 2nd Semester of 2018 and years following. The list is consecutive relative to the date of classroom delivery and no attempt is made on this page to annotate them here. (In other words, no teacher-commentary or interpretation of the texts on this page.) Many of them are given in both PDF and DOCX formats and each of these are set to download to your computer when you click the link. A few are given in HTML and these will appear in the contents frame of the present page. There will be more HTMLs in future as the site grows up. Please let me know if you have any trouble downloading or viewing. Email: bstewart@ricorso.net.
