ENGL 045. Modern British Poetry

Steven Spender called Modern poets "recognizers," creating a complex, fractured art out of circumstances they experienced as extraordinary, unprecedented. This course examines the responses of British male and female poets­­ (and some American expatriates) to the wars, shifting beliefs, complicated gender roles, and other dislocations of early 20th century life.
