Special Topics: Poetry of Place
ENGL 346
Fall 2010
Section: 01  

How is location experienced in a poem? Is each age marked by the presences that possess it? The poets whose work we consider, in their varied writing practice, explore the guarded borders between image and word, poetry and prose, music and the visual arts, individual and community, American history and the present, by way of their attention to the particularities of space, place, and the storied landscape of America. Hopefully we will also be able to pay particular attention to the immediate fact of our residence (temporary or otherwise) beside the Connecticut River.
