The New York School: Poetry, Art, Movies, and the Mimeo Revolution
ENGL 229
Fall 2014 not offered

The primary poets of the New York school's first wave--John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara, James Schuyler, and Barbara Guest--were deeply involved in the world of art, art criticism, and film. In this course, we will study the primary work of these poets in conjunction with the art and film they were viewing and the art criticism they were writing. We will also study their work in the context of key political and social movements of their time: feminism, gay liberation, and the Civil Rights Movement. Finally, we will address later generations of the New York school, the life of small presses and magazines, and the effect of the Mimeo Revolution.
