Who's Afraid of Modern Poetry?

Course number : LI111   
« back to classes page
T.S. Eliot once said, “modern poetry is supposed to be dif?cult.” As in all the arts, early 20th century poets started with a shattering of convention and did much to give modern poetry the reputation of being challenging. We will look at a few supposedly hard ones to see what they are made of, but mainly we will read and discuss works by some of the 20th and 21st centuries’ most notable writers whose poems are engaging and accessible. Course FAQ and syllabus will be available online at; click on the course materials tab.
