Contemporary Literature Syllabus Update

Homework over Spring Break

From your anthologies, read the following selections.
Theodore Roethke: My Papa's Waltz
Robert Hayden: Those Winter Sundays
All of the Elizabeth Bishop selections
Gwendolyn Brooks: We Real Cool and A Bronzeville Mother Loiters in Miss...

Story: Sonny's Blues by James Baldwin.

After Break we will be reading some of Robert Lowell Skunk Hour, For the Union Dead and For Roethke. All of the Ginsberg, Ferlinghetti and Kerouac. After that, Plath, Sexton, Forche, Nye, Raymond Carver, Sandra Cisneros. I'll assign more specific dates but if you're worried about reading-ahead, those will be the authors and selections from our books.

Have a fun (and very safe!) break. See you soon.
