Short Course Description

The field of contemporary poetry is often, if somewhat artificially, divided into camps, like traditional/formal poetry and avant-garde poetry. But many experimental and innovative poets employ traditional forms in interesting ways. In that sense, part of what makes poetry innovative is precisely its negotiation with markers of traditional poetry (like the sonnet and rhyme). In this seminar we will look at new (and old) manifestations of old (and new) forms, and read texts by poets and critics who explicitly address the question of form. The seminar will be particularly beneficial for students with an interest in poetry.
