LITR 375 Poetry and Jazz


This class will explore ways in which the creative impulses and procedures of jazz-a music of intense emotion, imagination (intuitively structured improvisation), and energy (fresh, vital rhythms and instrumental colors)-have inspired and intensified modern poetry. We will listen to jazz on record, read examples of poetry inspired by jazz, discuss their common social and cultural contexts, and discover how music may influence poetry’s subject, language, sound, and form. No previous knowledge of jazz is required for this course.
