Semester 1, 2013 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Barry Spurr
Phone: +61 2 9351 2689
Wide reading in the poetry of Robert Lowell, Philip Larkin, Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes will be set in the contexts of twentieth-century 'confessional' writing and the literary-critical issues which it raises: for example, how are readers able to relate to (and evaluate) this intensely personal material? Is it only personal and 'confessional'? Differences between the poets' approaches to confessional writing will also be discussed.
