We will consider how American Modernist poets—poets like Robert Frost, T.S. Eliot, Langston Hughes, Marianne Moore, William Carlos Williams, and Wallace Stevens—created, in the first half of the 20th Century, a poetic tradition that was new and different. This literature course, the sixth module in the Poetry in America series, explores a diverse array of American Modernist poets and poems. While “Modernism” is notoriously difficult to define, the movement spanned the decades from the 1910s to the mid-1940s, and the poetry of this period marked a clear break from past traditions and past forms.
