EN 3MCP: MODERN & CONTEMPORARY BRITISH POETRY

This module is chronologically arranged, in order for students to obtain a cumulative sense of the major trends and issues developed through the poetry across a span of roughly eighty years. The reading will be structured around certain ‘highlight’ poets and collections, but students are encouraged to read as broadly as possible in the British poetry of the modern and contemporary era. Seminars will focus discussion upon the work of poets who may include W.H. Auden, Robert Graves, Lynette Roberts, Ted Hughes, Geoffrey Hill, Philip Larkin, Robert Crawford, Alice Oswald, and Jo Shapcott.
