CRWT 211 Poetry and Poetics

3 credits 45.0 hours

Poetry is a response, and it invites a response. How have poets responded to experience during the past decades? How can responding to their work help us as writers and artists? By closely reading significant works and completing creative and critical projects, students will explore poetry’s relevance to history, culture, and contemporary artistic practice. The course focuses on 20th century poets such as Allen Ginsberg, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Sylvia Plath and on diverse recent poetry.
