LARTS 365 — Contemporary American Poetry

3 credits
Fall
Ron Price

An examination of the cultural and historical elements shaping the very young and fluid tradition of American poetry, including issues such as the modern quarrel with Classicism; the dialectic between language and reality, regional and international, personal and political; the social function of poetry; and the poet's relationship to community and the human family. In addition to poems, students will read literary and cultural essays written by contemporary poets on issues related to the American tradition.
