HMS-390A Poetry Across Media

3 Credits

What is a poem? Who is a poet? What are the limits of the poem? In this course we will look and listen for poems and the poetic across a variety of contexts. Among our poetic texts will be works publishes as poems in different media (ie: print, audio, internet, & video) and works typically presented as representative of other art forms (such as sculpture, painting, music, video art, conceptual art, net art, and dance). We will discuss these works in the context of poetry criticism and media theory.
