  PS An Introductory Survey of North American Poetry in the Twentieth and Twenty-First Centuries (AE_PSPNAP)

Marius Henderson, M.A.

2 SWS, ECTS-Studium, Sprache Englisch
Zeit und Ort: Do 16:00 - 18:00, C 601

“Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives” (Audre Lorde).
This seminar will provide an explorative survey of the diverse and vibrant tendencies that have shaped the field(s) of North American poetry since the beginning of the twentieth century. You will become acquainted with the work of a broad range of poets and with significant movements in twentieth-century North American poetry – e.g., Imagism, Beat poetry, the New York School, the Black Arts Movement. Furthermore, we will examine recent tendencies in contemporary poetry, such as conceptualism, so-called “uncreative writing,” and “hybrid poetry,” which have emerged under the impression of digitalization, globalization, and current socio-political developments. We will discuss the poetic texts not only in terms of their form and content but also take into consideration the historical and cultural contexts in which they are situated. Interactions of poetry with other forms of artistic practice (e.g., painting, music, performance art) and with popular culture will be addressed as well.
Serving as an introduction to the study of poetry, this seminar will also touch upon key concepts and methods of poetry analysis and poetic theory. We will scrutinize how poetry produces meaning(s) and how it may generate fascinating modes of (critical) thinking and feeling.
