ENG 401 Capstone Seminar in American Authors Frost, Stevens, and Carruth: Modern and Postmodern Poets of New England
Dr. John Kandl
This seminar will engage students in a profoundly exciting selection of the poetry of three major American poets: Robert Frost, Wallace Stevens, and Hayden Carruth. Through discussion and close-reading, we will explore ways these poets present a modernist sensibility, extending and reacting against earlier 19th-century traditions, as well as ways they point forward to and help shape the postmodern. Considering the significance of these poets in American literary history, we will also explore their engagement with a New England literary heritage, tracing, for instance, ways they incorporate, critique, or reject the legacies of transcendentalism, self-reliance, nature-writing, puritan ethics, etc. We will also note ways they both embrace and sometimes seek to escape the regional connections in their work.
