Politics in Poetry

Thursday 1.30 - 3.30

On this ten week course we will read a range of poems which demonstrate how poets have engaged with politics broadly defined, including the politics of class, gender and identity more generally, with the focus being on post-war and contemporary poetry. Some of the poets we will look at will be well known, such as Tony Harrison, Adrian Mitchell and Tom Leonard; others perhaps less so, including Douglas Oliver and Denise Levertov.
