RUSS 38.20 Poetry After War

The course will focus on poetry written after catastrophe, that takes on the impossibility of speaking and using language . We will read poets who lived through the fall of totalitarian regimes and the Holocaust, as well as later poets who sought to work through this trauma in order to recover language for writing. We will also examine work by poets who are grappling with the catastrophic failure of language in today’s war in Ukraine.
