Short Course Description

The 20th century saw tremendous innovation in the field of poetry, including changing definitions of poetry itself. This class is meant as a survey of some of the major, and minor, poets who operated in that century (the question of who counts as major or minor and who gets selected for teaching will itself be discussed). Rather than focus on one poet, or on a specific poetic movement, the class will aim to showcase something of the variety of poets and poetic techniques that left a mark on what we associate with poetry. Poets will include, among others, Lucille Clifton, Sylvia Plath, Robert Creeley, T. S. Eliot, Lyn Hejinian, Robert Frost, and Wallace Stevens.
