ENG 3520 - American Poetry

3 cr
So that students understand the distinctive attributes and achievements of American poetry, this course studies the abiding and evolving characteristics of poetry in general; the English and European influences on American poetry; but especially the development of American poetry itself by way of form and function, in particular the influences on, and of, modern American poetry. Reading includes poetry that represents such development from the nineteenth century to the present.
This course counts towards the Aesthetic Understanding Frame of Reference.
Prerequisite: Highly recommended: ENG 1310 , ENG 2311 , and ENG 2312 .
