(3 credits – TG) 3 hours lecture
From the Great War to 9/11, the critical events of the past century and the continuing challenges of the 21st century have compelled poets to debate, reinvent, and sometimes reject traditional poetic forms and conventions. An overview of forms, conventions, and historic poetic practice will provide the basis for looking at more recent modern and post-modern approaches.
