LALL 916 - Contemporary Poetry

3 credits
The course surveys both the central figures and the central movements in contemporary poetry. The course looks at the dominant currents that emerged after WWII, including Beats, Confessional, and New York Schools. The class will explore 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.

Prerequisites LACR*102 or LACR*103
