Poetics Seminar: Lineages

This course explores a tradition, or cross-section of traditions, that informs the aesthetic goals of the Jack Kerouac School. Possible focuses include New American Poetry, the New York School, Black Mountain Poetics, the Black Arts Movement, and the Beats, among others. Students consider the historical and social circumstances for a specific movement, in addition to its primary theoretical or aesthetic concerns. How a particular lineage expounds upon contemplative and innovative poetics will also be considered.
