Course Info
The expressions “Modern English Poetry” and “Modern Poetry in English” may signify ultimately different entities. But the role that the “modern” and “modernism” have been playing in the history of arts in general and in that of literature in particular constructs its own matrix, making the difference mostly redundant. Our foremost aim, in this course, is to subtract this double term (modern/modernism) from its highly sophisticated context by observing, and gradually making, the close readings of some selected poems written in English, throughout the modern times, as it were. At the end we’ll try to see whether we can attribute any significant function to it and whether it adds anything new to our understanding of poetry.
