Quite puzzling to find that Hardy has been left out, unless the course presupposes that modernity in English poetry is essentially an American contribution.

These lectures by Professor Hammer are excellent. I am listening to them repeatedly as they are rich in content
and insight. The appreciation Pro Hammer expressed for each poet underscores his excellence as a teacher and communicator
of remarkable empathy. My favorites are Wallace Stevens, Eliot and Frost. Professor Hammer opened my eyes to the themes and strands in Frost. The other poets are not as well known to me and I am looking forward to learning more from these great lectures..Thank you for posting them on U Tube.
