ENG 352, 353 - Modern Poetry I: 1889-1945

1 course unit
The Modernist turn in poetry parallels that in the other arts ─ the change from Yeats’ Wind in the Reeds to Eliot’s The Waste Land and Pound’s Pisan Cantos is a sea-change in the forms, rhythms, and narrative techniques in poetry.  But what is “modernism” ─ is it truly new, or is it a shift within the larger movement called Romanticism to a ‘harder” rhetoric?  What is “the occult” in poetry?  The emergence of women’s poetry?  Poets may include Yeats, Pound, Eliot, H.D., William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore, and others publishing poetry in English between 1889-1945.
Meets departmental Genealogies approach.
Meets general academic requirement W when offered as 353.
