ENGL 201 - 02 Jazz Music & American Poetry M - W - - - - 1335 - 1510 OEC 210
CRN: 22503 4 Credit Hours Instructor: Lucas B. Pingel This course will explore the influence of jazz music and culture in poetry, both as a source of content and as an informant of craft. We will study the relationship of improvisation and collaboration in contemporary poetry, and whether these values have shaped a distinctly "American" brand of poetry. The reading list will include such authors as Langston Hughes, Sonia Sanchez, Bob Kaufman, Frank O'Hara, and Jayne Cortez. Additionally, there will be a significant music listening portion. The writing load will consist of 15 pages of formal revised writing, and will include a close poetry explication and an independently designed research project.
