Women and Poetry: American Realism
College of Arts and Sciences
Dr. Tara Penry
How did poetry evolve during the age of American Realism? Specifically how did it change for female poets? How did their past influence them? Were similar topics covered? I will examine multiple poets, look briefly into their histories and draw focus to some of their works. I want to see how the styles and subject matter change over time, and how it varies person to person. I selected a variety of female poets. One is Canadian, one is African American, and there is even a Native American Poet.
