Poetics Seminar: Film Poetics

This course explores the relationship between poetry and film. By the mid-twentieth century, new American poets and underground filmmakers had established a vibrant fusion, and artistic collaborations established and redefined links between the moving picture and the written and spoken word, resulting in an extraordinary profusion of poetry/film hybrids. We also look at film-related poetic writings and the groundbreaking advent of the poetic montage.
