Course Description

Class discussions will focus intensively on poems selected to plumb each poet's range, depth, idiosyncrasies and excellences. We shall consider each poet's poems individually, in relation to one another within the poet's work, and in terms of comparison and contrast between the two poets, with references outward to commonly shared antecedents and contemporaries. Special emphasis will fall on the longer and the later poems of both poets.


Required texts: Stevens' THE PALM AT THE END OF THE MIND and THE NECESSARY ANGEL, and Yeats' COLLECTED POEMS. Ownership of or access to Stevens' OPUS POSTHUMOUS and LETTERS and to Yeats' COLLECTED PLAYS, AUTOBIOGRAPHY, and A VISION will also be useful.
