Eighteen experienced faculty members from across the United States present their analyses of ground-breaking modern American poets—from Whitman and Dickinson to Hip Hop—in richly illustrated video lectures. The course highlights both major poets—from Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson through T.S. Eliot, H.D, Amy Lowell, Hart Crane, Langston Hughes, and Muriel Rukeyser to Sylvia Plath, Robert Lowell, Adrienne Rich, and many others—and influential movements, from experimental modernism to the Black Arts Movement.
