"THE NEW RACIAL POETICS" (VLPA) THIS COURSE IS JUST WHAT THE TITLE CLAIMS: A FORAY INTO THE AMAZING LYRICAL WORK OF MOSTLY NEW, YOUNGER POETS OF COLOR WHO ARE OFTEN BREACHING NEW SUBJECTS IN THEIR ART. WE WILL TRY TO APPROACH THESE POEMS MORE ORGANICALLY, KEEPING A RUNNING ACCOUNT OF THE WAY THESE POEMS IMPACT US AS READERS OCCUPYING VARIOUS SOCIAL CONTEXTS. THE SCOPE OF THEIR INTERESTS IS VAST, THEIR TECHNIQUES NEVER PREDICTABLE; THEY PAY STRICT ATTENTION TO POETIC TRADITIONS AS OFTEN AS THEY ATTEMPT BOLD, EXPERIMENTAL DEVIATIONS FROM THOSE TRADITIONS. PREPARE, IN OTHER WORDS, TO BE BROUGHT UPRIGHT AND TO TALK ABOUT THAT FEELING.
