THE POETRY OF NOSTALGIA
Pound cried “Make It New!” The modern and contemporary poet may attempt to define the radically “modern”, but many major poets — Eliot, Yeats, Pound, Heaney, Oswald — use history to define the modern experience. This course explores how history —mythological, literary, real — is “new”, how nostalgia defines the modern poet’s project.
