Instructor: Prof. G. E. Clarke
Office Location: Jackman Humanities Building, Room 804
Brief Description of Course:
In the Fall, we will canvas many of the more-or-less canonical poets and associate schools and styles featured in Gary Geddes’s anthology, 70 Canadian Poets (2014). In the Spring, we will shift our focus to individual books by avant-garde poets such as Derksen, Zolfe, Philip, and W. Compton. Throughout the course, we will note the influence of socio-political movements, American and British poetics, and popular culture. We will listen to music, hear guest readers, and watch pertinent films. This course should be especially useful for poets.
Required Reading: 70 Canadian Poets,
