Last modified: 22 May 2019 17:07


Course Overview

This course will examine texts from the late nineteenth century onwards to explore French poetry in its interactions with the visual arts, music and philosophy. In the process, the idea of poetry as a self-enclosed genre will be challenged, and reassessed as a fascinating cultural interface. Different paradigms for thinking about poetry in dialogue with other media will be envisaged, from rivalry to translation.
