Skrócony opis:

Reading and writing of American poetry

The seminar focuses on the experience of reading and writing American poetry. A selection of poems from the 19th to the 21st cent. will be explored in class in the context of social and literary history. We will also address reception and translation of American poetry and try to “unlock the poet within.” We will seek to invite contemporary poets to share their work and comment on poetry writing.
