ENGL 4431 Contemporary American Poetry (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

The contemporary moment in American poetry is lively, diverse, and resists easy definition. Strong individual voices stake out widely differing poetic projects, and part of our work in this course will be to consider the poets with an eye toward their literary ancestors as well as their possible lines of contemporary kinship. We'll read poets writing today who will, in all likelihood, continue to be read several generations from now, as well as some newcomers about whose lasting power we'll make up our own minds.
