ENG 424 Contemporary American Poetry (3 credits)

An exploration of the American poetry scene, from the 1950s to the present, including representative works from a number of movements: the Beats, the Confessionals, the Black Arts movement, women’s poetry, the New York School, deep image poetry, and most recently, Language Poetry and New Formalism. The course is writing-intensive, with a student response journal and various assignments—including creative imitations, an explication, an analytical essay, and a review of a poetry collection.
