Course DescriptionPoets are among the first citizens to be arrested by dictators who seize power, because their poetry speaks truth to power. Today's poetry of resistance is flourishing at home and abroad. Some of these contemporary poets will be guest speakers. We also study poems by Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson, as well as poems written during the Civil War, World War I and II, the Northern Ireland conflict known as The Troubles, and the sixties.
