American Poetry in the 1950s: At the Boundary of the Postmodern?
In 1951 Charles Olson tells Robert Creeley that "we are now 'post' the
modern," yet few would agree that American poetry was entirely =
after 1951. The 1950s saw the later work of Frost, Stevens, Moore, and
Williams, the emergence of Lowell, Bishop, Wilbur, Roethke, and Rich, as =
as the beginnings of such innovative "schools" as Black Mountain, Beat, =
York, Confessional, and Deep Image. Papers that explore the =
rivalries, influences, claims, and counter-claims of the poetics of that
decade will be considered.
Accepted panelists must be or become members of NEMLA by November 2006 =
order to present at the conference.
Please send proposals (500 words maximum) by September 15, 2006.
