Ramazani, Jonathan: Norton Anthology of Modern Poetry


This course will survey major work and significant stylistic innovations in a variety of poets.  Major figures incude William Butler Yeats, Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, Marianne Moore, Mina Loy, T.S. Eliot and Wallace Stevens.  I am not sure if I will include poets of John Ashbery's generation.  The major work of the class will be finding the kinds of critical questions that deepen our pleasure and sense of significance in the work.  There will be two papers, a mid-term and final, and regular attendance is required.
