Course Description

Making It New(ish)

This class will focus on a number of poets, about two weeks per poet, examining the work of each in terms of how it contextualizes itself in regards to historical, cultural, aesthetic, religious and/or personal concerns (or the avoidance of them.) We will explore the poetry's uneasy relationship with convention and ways in which that relationship leads to generative, destructive, imaginative, innovative, recuperative explorations of poetry. (Maybe he means we'll like, um, read the poems closely.)
