ENGLISH 323

Contemporary Poetry


Description

An introduction to the work of a dozen influential poets, this course emphasises new developments. The focus is on the still controversial L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E poetry that emerged in the late 1970s and developments concurrent with it. This shift is seen against a background of changes in technology, politics and in popular and intellectual culture.
