Course syllabus / YU only
This course will examine the contemporary landscape of poetry, and assess on a global scale some of the different voices that have contributed over the last hundred years. While going through the textbook, The Vintage Book of Contemporary World Poetry by J.D. McClatchy, students will be exposed on a country by country basis to a spectrum of writers from the previous century while concurrently writing their own poetry. We will examine the role of influence in our work, and have class discussions to workshop our creative writing in audience-based ways. This course will prioritize your voice and subjective understanding of poetry, but also expect you to grow and learn more objective skills regarding revision and critical reading.
