A study of poetry and poetics from the beginning of the 20th century to the present. The course examines the tension between established forms of poetry and the efforts of modern poets to "make it new" (Pound), to reinvent poetry. In poetry since the Second World War, we will examine the enduring influence of modernism as well as anti- and post-modern strategies, forms, and styles. 20th- and 21st-century cultural and historical contexts will be crucial throughout. Poets studied may include Yeats, Pound, H.D., Williams, Moore, Eliot, Stevens, Auden, Ginsberg, Plath, Heaney, Walcott, Atwood, Brand, Halfe, and Wah.
