Spanning a selection of influential modern American poets ranging from Frost and William Carlos Williams through to Plath, Stevens and Ginsberg, this course will explore some of the most important and influential poetry written in the 20th century. Focussing on the complexities of identity, alienation and the determination of each poet studied to 'make it new', students will consider both the distinctively American qualities of the works in question and their significance in the context of literary and cultural modernity in general.
