What you'll learn in this literature class:

Elizabeth Bishop is a modern North American poet who is hard to identify in terms of a single school of poetry, place, or home.

She writes poems linked to her native ground of Nova Scotia and Massachusetts, yet she is also a poet who famously writes of travel. Brazil, where she lived for twenty years, was home away from home for her, as was Key West, for a shorter period. New York City, and Paris, too, figure into her poetic geography. 

The subjects of her poems are as wide-ranging as the places she lived in and visited: sea poems, city poems, poems of remembrance, political poems, poems of the north and poems of the south. Bishop’s poetry will be at the center of this course, and we will study her as a poet of memory, place, and travel as well as for her grasp of poetic form, her musical-poetic virtuosity, and for her visual accomplishments in poetry.
