A survey of both the central figures and the central movements in contemporary poetry. Dominant currents that emerged after WWII, including Beats, Confessional and New York Schools are included as are the formal, technical, thematic experimentation of the poetry written in the 60s and early 70s. Finally, the course examines the way a younger generation of poets has come to terms with the work of their predecessors.
