ENGL 009N. First-Year Seminar: Philadelphia Poets

What's happening in poetry today?  We'll explore that question through Philadelphia's vibrant literary scene, from the intellectual avant garde to the Spoken Word movement; from Daniel Hoffman's Brotherly Love to Sebastian Agudelo's Each Chartered Street; from Sonia Sanchez's Black Arts lyricism to Nzadi Keita's biography-in-verse of Frederick Douglass's wife Anna; from alumnus WD Ehrhart's wrenching evocations of the Viet Nam war to alumna Daisy Fried's bracing face-slapping satires.
