- The Emperor of Ice Cream: why Wallace Stevens, Marianne Moore and Frank O'Hara are importantCourse start date: Tue 11 Jan 2022
Location on this date: KS - Keeley StreetWe will explore the work of these three major 20th century American poets, focussing on what is original about their work and how they changed people’s understanding of what is possible in poetry. We will look at how their poetry developed over their writing lifetimes, how they saw their work in relation to the poetry of the past and present, and how their poetry reflected or otherwise gave meaning to their lives – Stevens as a lifelong insurance lawyer, Moore as an unmarried woman without a profession and living with her mother, and O’Hara as an art curator as out-gay as it was possible to be until his untimely death in 1960.
