Surely the most important goal of this class must be that you enjoy reading poetry and therefore discover ways in which you can accomplish this. We will read a variety of poetry from the distant past to the present, and we will talk a little about the role of history, and the life of the individual poet. To help you to intellectually and emotionally appreciate poetry we will concentrate on matters such as meter, rhythm, voice, and form; we will discuss the sonnet, the villanelle, the sestina, free verse, and more. You will write responses, do an in-class presentation, write two critical essays, and construct your own anthology, for which you will write an introduction that unifies your ideas and feelings--the importance of the poems you have chosen.

Required Texts: Helen Vendler, ed. Poems, Poets, Poetry: An Introduction and Anthology.

This is a writing course and its goal, as you might expect, is to help you write better. To that end you will write a paper every week and the writing cycle preparation, writing, peer editing, revision, submission, and return will determine how class time is spent. To provide some common focus we will read Shakespeare's Richard III and see the McKellen and maybe Scotland Pa. films. The course grade will be calculated as the average of the individual paper grades.

"What sticks to the memory, often, are those odd little fragments that have no beginning and no end." Tim O'Brien

"If a nation loses its storytellers, it loses its childhood." Peter Handke

"Music is your own experience; if you don't live it, it won't come out your horn." Charlie Parker

"Sometimes you have to play a long time to play like yourself." Miles Davis

In this seminar, you will work to bring to the page what no other artist has: your own way of phrasing, your own way of observing, your own history that shapes your lens. What do you remember most vividly? What do you most vividly forget? Where does the line blur between fact and fiction, and how can you walk this line as a tightrope to mine deeper truth? As writers, you will be asked to use writing as a shovel, excavating meaning in your life. This class will function as a workshop and is designed to give you the structure and tools you need to realize your own intentions. We will read as writers; essays, stories, and films are our only texts. While you will learn from critical feedback and lessons on craft, it is my hope that when you sit in front of the blank page you will write what moves you, and yours will be the only voice you hear. Ultimately if your writing is successful, it will be meaningful not only to you but to your readers is well. This is where craft and revision play a crucial role. Because workshops are based on the responsibilities we have to each other as writers, attendance and participation are essential.

Credits: (3; 2 in the half-term).

This course addresses the question posed in its title from the perspective of English liiterature. I will suggest that English literature in the university is conceived as an excercise in citizenship training. To cite the example that will be at the heart of our inquiry: the common periodization of English Literature in epochs such as Medieval, Renaissance, Augustan, or Victorian makes sense only if the organization of the discipline is pegged to a certain national history of England. My approach will be critical rather than affirmative: It will be my contention that there are no legitimate aesthetic or historical grounds for yoking the study of English literature to that nationalist history. Further, I will contend that a dubious nationalist mandate is reproduced rather than contested when such other national/continental literatures in English as American, African, Caribbean, and so on are belatedly and uncritically appended to a nationalist English tradition. Our goal will be to unburden the study of literature of the weight of nationalist histories. What alternate periodization might we suggest for resolutely non-nationalist English literary studies? Readings for this course will consist entirely of theoretical and critical texts. My hypothesis will be that the study of specific literary texts ought to be deferred until the conceptual grounds for the study of English literature has been sufficiently clarified.

The authors to be studied may include Matthew Arnold, F. R. Leavis, Raymond Williams, Terry Eagleton, Brian Doyle, Chris Baldick, Robert Crowford (editor of The Scottish Invention of English Literature), Gauri Viswanathan, Edward Said, Gayatri Spivak, Kwame Anthony Appiah, Simon Gikandi, Gerald Graff, David Shamway and John Guillory. We may also focus on a recent special of the PMLA 116: 1 (January 2001) "Globalizing Literary Studies."

In this section of English 239, we will be reading three novellas, several short stories, and lots of poems, as well as viewing one or two films. Grades for the course will be largely based on in-class presentations analyzing one of the course readings, and a paper that you will develop from your presentation. Additionally, we'll do a final in-class essay on the last day of the course.

The syllabus brings together a wide variety of writers and styles representative of American literature so that each student should be able to discover something of interest. Together, we will emphasize the close examination of literary works, lively discussion, and techniques for developing ideas about literature in writing.

The aim of this course is to introduce you to the art of poetry so that you can read and discuss any poem with understanding and delight. During the term, we will move from a general survey of poetic techniques and forms to a more detailed study of the work of selected authors from the Renaissance to the present. Formal writing will include three (ungraded) exercises in poetic analysis and four (graded) papers (3-5 pages) on individual authors and poems.

We live in a period of immensely rich poetic production in the United States; men and women of widely divergent cultural backgrounds, aesthetic persuasions, and registers of "voice" are producing lyric poetry of unprecedented variety and abundance. But how is a reader to find foothold among the hundreds of literary magazines and book publications that clamor for attention? How negotiate between private pleasure (and solace and reflection) on the one hand and this jubilant (and contentious and contradictory) marketplace of verse on the other? How find a listening post midst all this noise? This course is not conceived as an historical survey, but we will spend approximately half the term examining poems from another period of intense lyric production - the 16th and 17th centuries in England - because these poems provide a particularly vivid introduction to the resources, and resourceful violations, of traditional poetic form. In the second half of the term, we will read, discuss, and listen to a group of recent American poems, ones I think are particularly good at suggesting the variety of contemporary pleasures, good too at constructing the margin of silence that poetry, like other forms of music, requires in order to be heard. From this modest, two-pronged historical perspective, we will explore some highly immodest questions about poetic form: How does it make meaning? How does it sound? What is its relationship to human imagination?

"Lifeless in appearance, sluggish / dazed spring approaches . . . One by one objects are defined." Our spring half-term study of British and American poetry will begin with a selection of lyrics about spring. We will ask what these poems and their ways of observing tell us about writing, reading, and understanding poetry. As we consider the poetic impulse of seeing things anew, we will examine the features of poetic language and the forms poems both take and refuse. Poets who might receive more sustained attention include the above quoted William Carlos Williams, William Wordsworth, Emily Dickinson, H.D., Robert Hayden, and Elizabeth Bishop. Requirements include excellent attendance and animated - not "sluggish" - participation, memorization work, several informal writing exercises, two essays, quizzes, and a final exam.

This course surveys the forms and functions of contemporary English. We will consider some of the major dimensions of English structure (orthography, phonetics, intonation, word formation, syntax, etc.) and how these structures characterize both English speakers and their linguistic purposes. During the term, we will explore the social and geographical dialects of Modern English (e.g., British vs. American English and Black English Vernacular), its professional jargons (e.g., the language of advertising, religion, law, and politics), and its situational varieties (e.g., the language of conversation, oral narrative, and literature). Requirements for the course will include weekly exercises, a final exam, and a substantial paper (10-15 pages) investigating some aspect of Modern English structure or use.

Our reading and classroom discussion will focus on work produced by American poets during the past two decades, with particular emphasis on work of the past ten years. Because I wish to concentrate on the structural and semantic resources of the book, as well as those of individual poems, we will be reading individual volumes of poetry rather than the composite volumes known as "selected" or "collected" works. Likely candidates for our syllabus include Frank Bidart, Jorie Graham, C. K. Williams, Yusef Komunyakaa, Louise Gluck, Marie Howe, Ellen Bryant Voigt, Anne Carson, and Rita Dove.
