“Under the Rock”, un homenaje invisible en la música, el ejercicio íntimo y personal de un individuo o grupo que encuentra satisfacción desmedida; su rendición a las ondas sonoras que genera su instrumento y la complicidad de la banda. Es la música que desvanece la ausencia del privilegio y materializa por instantes una fama que toca la divinidad. Es un viaje personal y espiritual que en la mayoría de las veces solo la música logra entender. Somos espectadores, solo eso.

audio introduction to week 1

As you see on our main syllabus/schedule, each "chapter" of our course will be introduced by a short audio introduction. We have just made the introduction to week 1 available. You can find it linked to the syllabus, but since this is the very first one, I thought I would also feature it here on our home page. Here (MP3; 12 mins.) is your link to the audio. You can stream it, or you can right-click and download. Please note that each of these audio introductions will be archived under "archive of audio updates" linked to the left-hand navigation bar of every ModPo page. At the end of this week's audio intro, I recite and briefly discuss a poem by Emily Dickinson, the text of which you can see here.--Al Filreis

main syllabus


MODERN & CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN POETRY - syllabus/reading schedule


CHAPTER 1: WHITMAN & DICKINSON, TWO PROTO-MODERNISTS (weeks 1 & 2)

chapter 1 (week 1): two proto-modernists

Monday, September 10 through Sunday, September 16. In the first week of our course, we'll encounter two 19th-century American poets whose very different approaches to verse similarly challenged the official verse culture of the time. As a matter of form (but also of content!) Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson were radicals. What sort of radicalism is this? In a way, this course is all about exploring expressions of that radicalism from Whitman and Dickinson to the present day. Such challenges to official verse culture (and, often, American culture at large) present us with a lineage of ideas about art and expression, a tradition that can be outlined, mostly followed, somewhat traced. In this course we follow, to the best of our ability--and given the limits of time--that tradition, and try to make overall sense of it. You will find that we do this one poem at a time. Here in week 1 we will explore Dickinson first, Whitman second, and then begin to sketch out the major differences between them, which, some say, amount to two opposite ends of the spectrum of poetic experimentalism and dissent in the nineteenth century. Which is to say: on the spectrum of traditional-to-experimental poetry, they are on the same end (experimental); on the spectrum of experimentalism, their approaches can put them on opposite ends. In short, they offer us alternative poetic radicalisms, and their influences down the line (which we will explore in week 2) are both powerful but largely distinct. One question you'll be prepared to ask by the end of the course: is the Dickinsonian tradition more ascendant and apt in today's experimental poetry, or the Whitmanian?

chapter 1 (week 2): some Dickinsonians, some Whitmanians

Monday, September 17 through Sunday, September 23. During this week, the second half of chapter 1, we will read the work of two poets writing in the Whitmanian mode and three poets writing in the Dickinsonian mode. We will encounter our Whitmanians, William Carlos Williams and Allen Ginsberg, again later in the course - Williams as a modernist and Ginsberg as a "beat" poet. The Whitman/Williams/Ginsberg connection is a strong one; Ginsberg wrote directly in response to both Whitman and Williams and saw the lineage as crucial to the development of his approach. Our Dickinsonians are more disparate in their response to Dickinson's writing. Of the three - Lorine Niedecker, Cid Corman, and Rae Armantrout - only the last could be said really to be a direct poetic descendent of Emily Dickinson's aesthetic.

CHAPTER 2: THE RISE OF POETIC MODERNISM (weeks 3 & 4)

chapter 2.1 (week 3): imagism

Monday, September 24 through Sunday, September 30. Modernism in poetry had many beginnings; imagism marks just one. But in a fast introduction, this brief but influential movement gives us a good place to start. Imagists had no use for late Victorian wordiness, flowery figuration and "beautiful" abstraction. They rejected such qualities through staunch assertions demanding concision, concentration, precise visuality and a sort of super-focused emotive objectivity. In this first of four sections of chapter 2, we will ask ourselves whether each poem meets the impossible or nearly impossible standards set out by imagist manifestos. If any given poem "fails" to meet such standards, it is by no means a sign of "bad poetry." But one way to learn about the rise of poetic modernism is to make discernments based on the poets' own (momentary) programmatic demands. Image: H.D. and Ezra Pound.

chapter 2.2 (week 3 continued): Williams

Monday, September 24 through Sunday, September 30, continued. Now in the second of four parts of our chapter on the rise of modernism, we take a closer look at William Carlos Williams (1883-1963). We met Williams as a "Whitmanian" in chapter 1, the middle figure in a poetic line running from Whitman to Ginsberg. But that focus on him was a little misleading. The Williams of the late 1910s and 1920s was a poet fascinated by currents of formal experimentation - imagism, yes, but also dadaism, cubism (especially drawing on innovations and painting) and, a little later, objectivism. It's not the purpose of this course that we learn what all these -isms mean. Rather, let's start with a few poems by Williams that befit the imagist moment, and go from there. Quickly we'll find that Williams (always aesthetically restless) was interested in a writing that might capture the dynamism of its modern subject matter and was (mostly) willing to face problems created by traditional approaches to description and portraiture. When these conventions seemed to him to fail, he was prepared to include such failure in the poem itself - disclosing the troubled process of representation.

chapter 2.3 (week 4): Stein

Monday, October 1 through Sunday, October 7. Gertrude Stein's contribution to modernist poetry and poetics cannot be overstated, so now, in the third section of chapter 2 we turn to her, spending the better part of week 4 in our course on a selection of her supposedly "difficult" writings. The difficulty of deriving any sort of conventional semantic meaning from the short prose-poems that comprise Tender Buttons turns out to be, for many readers, a helpful inducement to read for other kinds of signifying. As we hope you'll see from the video discussions in this section, such difficulty need not excuse us from close reading. Stein's poems really can be interpreted. They might eschew representation, but by no means do they turn away from reference. The hard work you do in this part of chapter 2 will be amply rewarded when we get to chapter 9. Stein is a particular influence on John Ashbery in chapter 8, but she is an important influence on nearly every poet we'll read in chapter 9. As a matter of fact, here in chapter 2 we have a chance to listen to Jackson Mac Low (a chapter 9 poet) talk about why he finds Stein's opaque and difficult Tender Buttons so nonetheless meaningful. And we hear Joan Retallack (another chapter 9 poet) paying homage to Stein's "Composition as Explanation."

chapter 2.4 (week 4 continued): pushing at the edges of modernist poetics

Monday, October 1 through Sunday, October 7, continued. "The Baroness" (Elsa von Freytag Loringhoven) was way out there. But because she so intensely embodied modernist experimentalism, learning something about her life and writing is an apt way, in part, to end our brief introduction to poetic modernism roughly from 1912 to 1929. The three instances of modernist extremity we encounter in chapter 2.4 are very different expressions of "High Modernism." Well, the Baroness was certainly high on highballs when she wrote the poem of hers we'll read - or, rather, her language remarkably simulates a reeling discombulation, such that its critique of 1920s-style commercialism (not in itself unusual at the time) has a very sharp edge. She was "New York Dada" epitomized; Tristan Tzara's ideas about cutting up newspapers to form "personal" poems were, among his many other radical notions, crucial to the dadaist import. And John Peale Bishop? Well, as you'll see, he's another story altogether; his sonnet sets us up well for our approach to antimodernist doubts expressed by the poets of chapters 3, 4 and 5. At right: Elsa von Freytag Loringhoven.

CHAPTER 3 (week 5): ANTIMODERNIST DOUBTS - COMMUNIST POETS OF THE 1930s

Monday, October 8 through Sunday, October 14. The 1930s were of course years of economic crisis - the Depression. Like most other people, poets felt the urgency induced by privation, lack of opportunity, and desperation. But poets had all along been inclined toward social as well as aesthetic experimentalism; and they could write effectively, and so many felt they could be useful in the larger effort to find solutions - some modestly reformist, some extremer - to the nation's and the world's huge problems. When the Depression set in, many poets embraced radical critiques of the economic status quo and some joined revolutionary groups such as the Communist Party of the United States. Such ideological journeys were often quite brief, and most once-Communist poets regretted it later, and said so. One of the myths created later is that all modernist poets repudiated modernism's embrace of opaqueness, indirection, and self-referentiality and began to write clearly and "transparently" so that masses of people could understand their language. This is not true; many pre-1930s modernists continued to write in experimental modes and remained committed to cubism, surrealism, dadaism, etc., and joined radical causes. But for our purposes here in this very brief chapter 3, we look at two poets whose poems, it might be said, bear radical content but deliver that content in traditional - one might say, conservative - forms. What can we make of this apparent contradiction or irony? What can we learn here about modernism's relation to political life? Above at left: Genevieve Taggard at left; street protest outside a failing bank, early 1930s.

CHAPTER 4 (week 5, cont.): ANTIMODERNIST DOUBTS - TWO HARLEM RENAISSANCE POETS

Monday, October 8 through Sunday, October 14, continued. Our course is a limited survey and its selections are drastic - never more so than here in chapter 4. Although Harlem Renaissance writers such as Jean Toomer (in works like Cane) engaged a modernist sense of genre, we look at two poets whose concept of the relation between traditional stanza form and the content of racist hatred helps us understand the limits of formal experiment. Claude McKay's strategic use of the Shakespearean sonnet is as powerful a refusal of free verse as can be found anywhere. His sense of the complicated inheritance of English prosody will come back to us at the very end of the course. At right: Claude McKay (left), Countee Cullen (right).

CHAPTER 5 (week 5, cont.): ANTIMODERNIST DOUBTS - FROST

Monday, October 8 through Sunday, October 14, continued. Robert Frost is widely considered a major modern American poet but his relationship to modernism is mostly antagonistic. In our series of short chapters featuring poets' doubts about aspects of the modernist revolution, we consider just one poem by Frost for its frank but also witty way of raising the issue of subject-object relations. The speaker and another figure find themselves on either side of a wall. Should that wall come down? Does Frost's answer to that question have anything to do with his famous antimodernist complaint - that free verse is "like playing tennis without a net"?

CHAPTER 6 (week 5, cont.): FORMALISM OF THE 1950s

Monday, October 8 through Sunday, October 14, continued. There are several ways of looking generally at U.S. poetry in the first postwar (post-World War II) period, 1945-60. No single generalization will do, but our course implies two main trends. First, there was a retrenchment, a "coming home," a consolidation - a mainstreaming of modernism and, for some, a new formalist (or neo-formalist) reaction against what was deemed modernist experimental excess. This consolidation coincided with a renewed cultural conservatism or quietism, generally understood as caused by or aided by fears of communism; concerns about women who had entered the wartime workplace and were now expected to resume domestic life; the ease of life during a time of economic prosperity; the massification of university education; the flight from the cities; and a suburbanization of values and lifestyle. For some this meant assuming modernist gains - free verse, wide choice of subject matter, everyday diction - while suppressing radical experiment. For others this meant an outright antimodernism, although it was now more conservative than the antimodernism of poets in chapters 3 and 5. The latter impulse expressed itself in a neo-classicist use of satire and irony - a kind of new Augustan poetics. Chapter 6 gives us a brief look at this postwar neo-formalism. A second trend, very different, was the explosion of a new poetic radicalism - fueled by a sometimes ecstatic and often antic negative response to the above-mentioned quietism and poetic conservatism. Drawing on the experimental spirit of modernism - and sometimes celebrating the influence of individual modernist poets - this trend very roughly becomes known as the "New American" poetry. The beats of chapter 7 and the New York School poets of chapter 8 are instances of this. There are other New American approaches and groupings, to be sure, but we will not have time to consider them except in passing references. But first let us quickly end week 5 - our rapid tour through the doubters and troublers of chapters 3, 4, 5 & 6 - with a glance at the neo-formalists. Above at right: Richard Wilbur.

CHAPTER 7 (week 6): BREAKING CONFORMITY: THE BEATS

Monday, October 15 through Sunday October 21. The so-called "New American Poetry," emerging in the late 1940s and 1950s, went in many directions; some trends, styles and approaches overlapped and some were or seemed more distinct and separable than others. The "Beat" poets were a fairly distinct community of poets, making it easier than it would be otherwise to study their ecstatic, antic, apparently anti-poetic break with official verse culture as a coherent movement. Our approach, in just one week, looks at two "classic" Beats (Ginsberg and Kerouac) and then quickly moves off to adjacent figures. Creeley was not a Beat poet but his most famous poem engages poetic, psychological and social matters with which Ginsberg and Kerouac and the others were obsessed. Anne Waldman is an "outrider" poet and more closely associated with the second generation of "New York School" poets, but was a dear friend of Ginsberg and learned a great deal from his political pedagogy. Amiri Baraka, as Leroi Jones, was a Beat poet for a few years and then broke away. The poem by Baraka we study here gives us a chance to look back on Countee Cullen's traditionally formal poetic response to racist hatred. Our focus on Kerouac is a little unusual; he of course is known more as a novelist than a poet. But his "babble flow" has been a significant influence on contemporary poets - more than his narrative fictional stance as psychosocial itinerant. We will have occasion, then, to examine and question Kerouac's - and implicitly Ginsberg's - claim to be writing naturally spontaneous language. Our chapter 9 poets for the most part doubt such claims. Above at left: Anne Waldman and Jack Kerouac.

CHAPTER 8 (week 7): THE NEW YORK SCHOOL

Monday, October 22 through Sunday, October 28. Frank O'Hara, John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch and Barbara Guest represent the New York School of poetry in this week of our course. We met Anne Waldman briefly in chapter 7 - from the "second generation" New York School. Here now we add two others of the second generation: Ted Berrigan and Bernadette Mayer. Our super-close readings of Guest's "20" and Ashbery's "Some Trees" are intended, in part, to show that the non-narrative or anti-narrative styles of this group - and their propensity for sudden shifts in pronoun and non-sequitur imagery, and for inside-the-community name dropping - nonetheless produce writing that can be interpreted line by line. During this week (a bare-minimum introduction to this playful postmodernity), we will get a bit of pastiche from Koch, several instances of O'Hara's I-do-this-I-do-that explorations of lunchtime, and examples of Ashbery's opaque lyricism, Guest's memory-as-word associationalism, Berrigan's anti-narrative as daily social resistance, and Mayer's application of O'Hara's exuberant attention to daily details to a woman's life and language. Image: various New York School poets gather at a party, including Bill Berkson, John Ashbery, Kenneth Koch, and Frank O'Hara.

CHAPTER 9: TRENDS IN RECENT POETRY (weeks 8, 9 & 10)

Now we spend our final three weeks surveying three related movements or groupings of experimental poetry, covering recent decades to the present. In week 8 (chapter 9.1) we look at the so-called "Language Poetry" movement as it emerged in the San Francisco Bay area and New York in particular in the 1970s and early 1980s. In week 9 (9.2), we turn to chance-generated and aleatory and quasi-nonintentional writing. In week 10 (9.3), we look at the recent emergence (or resurgence) of conceptual poetry. Several of the 9.2 poets follow directly from the innovations of the 9.1 Language poets. A few of the 9.3 conceptualists see themselves as breaking away from Language poetry and embrace a "post-avant" status, while others see a continuity from modernism through Language writing and aleatory writing to conceptualism. The extent to which all these poets - but especially the 9.1 and 9.2 poets - show their indebtedness to modernists such as Duchamp, Stein, and Williams and proto-modernist Dickinson does suggest that our course is the study of a line or lineage of experimental American poetry continuing out of modernism.

chapter 9.1 (week 8): an introduction to Language poetry

Monday, October 29 through Sunday, November 4. By starting with Silliman's "Albany" and Hejinian's My Life, we focus on ways in which - and reasons why - Language poets refused conventional sequential, cause-and-effect presentations of the writing self. The self is languaged - is formed by and in language - and is multiple across time (moments and eras) and thus from paratactic sentence to paratactic sentence. While this radical revision of the concept of the lyric self (and of the genre of memoir) emphasizes one aspect of the Language Poetry movement at the expense of several other important ideas and practices, it is, we feel, an excellent way to introduce the group. Bob Perelman's "Chronic Meanings," aside from its contribution to this introduction, also picks up a theme of our course: the experimental writer attempts to encounter death (loss, grief, absence) by somehow making the form of the writing befit that discontinuity and disruption. We began this theme with Stein's "Let Us Decide" and continued it with O'Hara's "The Day Lady Died," and will proceed with Jackson Mac Low's "A Vocabulary for Peter Innisfree Moore" in chapter 9.2. Above, left to right: Susan Howe, Ron Silliman, Lyn Hejinian.

chapter 9.2 (week 9): chance

Monday, November 5 through Sunday, November 11. When Jackson Mac Low put a body of language (for instance a poem by Gertrude Stein) through a rigorous procedure, he would say that he created (or "wrote" - in the sense of computer programming) the procedure and that the procedure created the poem. One of his goals was to experiment with the elimination or evacuation or at least the suppression of poetic ego. In this sense his work stands alongside that of Silliman and Hejinian who (by other means) sought to question the stable lyric subject that had been for so long been associated with the writing of poetry, and with imagination generally. On this point the chapter 9 poets are unified in breaking from modernism's implicit and often explicit claim of creative, a-world-in-a-poem-making genius. But otherwise the aesthetic connection between, for instance, Mac Low and Stein is strongly positive. (Please note: during our filmed discussion on Mac Low's "A Vocabulary for Peter Innisfrree Moore," Al Filreis gets a little carried away when reading a list of words made from Moore's name; neither the word "spicier" nor the phrase "this weekend" can be derived from those letters!)

chapter 9.3 (week 10): conceptualism & unoriginality

Monday, November 12 through Sunday, November 18. Not every artist we meet here claims to be part of a trend or movement now widely known as conceptualist poetics. Some embrace or have embraced the term: Kenneth Goldsmith, Christian Bok, Caroline Bergvall. Others, such as Rosmarie Waldrop, have been involved in appropriative and unoriginal practices for decades. Erica Baum is a photographer of found language who seems to thrive in the atmosphere created by the explicit conceptualists. Michael Magee is an original Flarfist, which some see as divergent from conceptualism but here at least seems certainly a cousin. Others we encounter in our final week (Jennifer Scappettone and Tracie Morris) are using unoriginality and linguistic borrowing and "writing through" for their own reasons and are creating distinct effects. But every artist in chapter 9.3 displays an intense virtuosity that defies what most folks at first expect from writings made from such an adamant rejection of creativity. We hope that despite the strangeness of it all you will find a great deal of pleasure in watching them undertake their hyper-concentrated, seemingly impossible projects. What can look easy in such experimentalism is often demanding in the extreme. Is there a better example of this than Eunoia?
