ENGL 4680: 'the world in a jug': Contemporary Multicultural Poetry
This course will read single-author books of poems by poets from the U.S. and elsewhere published during the last 20 years. According to choices as yet to be determined, we'll read books that reflect the complex array of poetic approaches and political / social realities that comprise the fabric of contemporary poetry. Multicultural and, at times, transnational, the course material will also emphasize books that engage existing social / material worlds (at least in part) outside of "their author's own" mind.
We'll draw on a diverse array of writers whose work affords us necessary visions of our/their worlds in ways that only poems can deliver.
