Contemporary U.S. Poetry

ENGL 250
Fall 2016 not offered
Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory

In this course, we will read contemporary poetry, focusing on the work written in the period 1980 to the present, by understanding diverse poetic roots and routes through American literature, multi-culturalism, post-9/11 and environmental anxieties to an art that speaks to the present. We will sharpen our analytic skills and practice close reading and annotation to build our capacities to write responses to poetic texts as literature and cultural expression.
