Reading and Writing Contemporary American Poetry [Rich Smith]

Have you ever been confused by a poem? Do you describe yourself as someone who doesn’t “get” poetry a lot of the time? In this class, we break down contemporary American poetry (1945 to present) into four loose categories that will allow you to open up any book or literary journal and understand what’s going on. Of course, the only way to truly understand an aspect of writing is to do it yourself. So, once we define those four categories, we’ll use them as models for our own poems.
