ENGL208M - Modern World Poetry: A Conversation Across Cultures (3-0-3)

This course encourages students to explore poetic voice and vision and to “break bread” with the world, to paraphrase W.H. Auden, by reading and discussing poems of various cultures and languages (translated into English). Students will read, analyze, and form perspectives on a selection of poems from Latin America, Asia, Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, and other regions. The final project in the course focuses on research, analysis, and presentation of poets from a culture of the student’s choice. Prerequisite: ENGL110XM or ENGL110M. (Fulfills English or Humanities requirement)
