Irena Yamboliev




Irena Yamboliev is Research Assistant for the course. Irena works on the intersection of literary prose style and nonverbal art objects in British literature of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In particular, she looks at what happens when writers translate the decorative arts as models for their innovative, experimental narrative practices. More broadly, she is interested in color and its history and theory, Decadence, the literature of love, and computational approaches to text analysis. She received her PhD in English from Stanford in January 2015.

In this course, we will read ten significant premodern poems by women. We have chosen each poem to give you a sense of its structure as a poem and its importance as a form in its time. This course also reveals the roots each poem has in history, in slavery, in conventional thought and unorthodox opinion.
