Is there an “American” poetic voice, and if so, how might we find representative expressions of this contribution to the world?   In this four week class we will read a variety of American poets ranging from Whitman and Dickinson to Frost, William Carlos Williams, Robert Lowell, Stephen Dunn, Allen Ginsberg, Maxine Kumin, and several others.  Upon registration for the course, the class member will be sent the assigned texts electronically.

James Hollis, Ph.D. is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Washington, D.C., Executive Director of the Jung Society of Washington, and author of fourteen books.
