Description

In this course, we shall study the major poetry in English of the period 1900-1940. Our principal subject matter will be work by the most important poets — Thomas Hardy, W.B. Yeats, T.S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, D.H. Lawrence, H.D., W.C. Williams, Marianne Moore, Robert Frost, Hart Crane, and Wallace Stevens — but we will also devote some time to special topics like Imagism, the poetry of The Great War, and the Harlem Renaissance, as well as to the social, historical, and literary backgrounds of modern poetry. The objective of the course is a clear understanding of the techniques and themes of modern poetry, which are especially significant because they continue to influence and inform the poetry of our own time.
