Modern Poetry

This module will look at the work of modern poets (Modernism and after) focussing mainly on their poetry, but, where relevant, on their critical essays and work in other genres (e.g. drama) which adds to an understanding of their poetic work. The major topics covered will include: the modern condition, the relation to history and myth, modern poetics, the urban and natural worlds and war. Other topics may be considered, depending on the selection of poets in any particular academic year.
