Modern Poetry (ENGL 310) with Langdon Hammer

The poetry and life of Robert Frost are characterized in opposition to the works of nineteenth-century poets and Modernists Eliot and Pound. Frost's poetic project, how he positions himself among his contemporaries, his poetics of work, and his concept of "the sound of sense" are discussed. The poems "Mowing" and "'Out, Out--'" are interpreted, and the tensions between vernacular language and poetic form that they showcase are explored.
