Course Description

ENG 266
Modern American Poetry

The focus of this course is modernism in American poetry. We will try to understand what modernism was by looking at some 19th-century backgrounds (Whitman and Dickinson), by reading a selection of poems by the classic modernist poets (Stein, Stevens, Williams, Pound, Eliot, H. D., and Moore) and poets writing in traditions that followed these writers (Objectivist, Black Mountain, Confessional, Beat, and New York School).
Offered every other year beginning 2019-20.
