This program will be online.

We will devote each week to a different modernist poet: Yeats & Stevens. We will read widely in each poet’s work; in our discussions for each poet, we’ll look closely at a few individual poems, with others we’ve read informing our analysis. We’ll look at biographical details or prose work by each poet as they become relevant, but our work will be driven above all by close reading. Students will be expected to read to prepare for discussions. Should any student want to develop her thinking further by writing a paper at the end of the class, I would be happy to advise such a project.
