Tuma, Keith: Anthology of Twentieth-Century British and Irish Poetry

Description

This seminar/workshop in the writing of poetry is intended for the exploration of contemporary solutions to long-standing, as well as recent, questions facing poets. Students in the class will undertake writing projects in relation to technical and thematic issues that seem to persist through modernist writings into those of the present. The purpose will be to take up the challenge of modernism (“make it new”) and that of late capitalism (“newness is old news”) to make literature of our own. This workshop is open to beginners as well as to students with some experience as poets. The instructor asks only that the students remember that writing poetry is a rigorously demanding undertaking.         

Please note: this version of English 143B will be closely affiliated with Prof. Charles Altieri’s 45C section 1 class; students in this 143B must be enrolled in (or, under special circumstances, auditing) that 45C class. This 143B/45C connection is intended to encourage critical rigor in poetry and creative thinking in criticism.

To be considered for admission to this class, please submit 5 photocopied pages of your poems, along with an application form, to Lyn Hejinian's box in 322 Wheeler, BY 4:00 P.M., TUESDAY, APRIL 17, AT THE LATEST.

Be sure to read the paragraph concerning creative writing courses on page 1 of this Announcement of Classes for further information regarding enrollment in such courses!
