Before and after 9/11: American Political Poetry from 1989 to 2009
A one-day conference at the University of Leicester
19th June 2009
 
The twenty-year span from the end of the Cold War to 2009, a period that
has 9/11 almost at its mid-point, has been a fertile one for American
poetry. Especially in the wake of 9/11 and the “war on terror” poets have
re-engaged with politics: recent poems have commented on Guantanamo, the
political responses to 9/11, the war of image and rhetoric waged by the
government against the American people and America’s role in Iraq. Poets
have also tackled environmental and cultural policies. Post-Cold War
