Contemporary U.S. Poetry

ENGL 250
Fall 2012 not offered
Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory

What exactly is American about American poetry? In this course, we will discuss the work of many contemporary poets in the context of their relation to literary tradition, innovation, and American culture. Primary consideration will be given to the relation between written and spoken texts, form and content, lyricism and politics. We will also look at foundational poems by 19th-century and early 20th-century poets.
