FROM ANNE BRADSTREET TO W. H. AUDEN: AMERICAN POETS THROUGH THE CENTURIES

Achmad Effendi Kadarisman

Abstrak


Abstract: Taking at the outset the recently published anthology 101 Great American Poems, this article takes a close look at the thirty-nine American poets who established literary prominence through the period of three and a half centuries.  For analytical purposes, these poets are classified into several different categories: major and minor poets, romantic and realist poets, and women poets. Further investigation is conducted to find out the salient literary features pertaining to each of these categories.  Finally, it is equally important to see how these poets “worked together” in shaping the so-called American poetry.

Key words: American poets, major and minor poets, romantic and realist poets, women poets, American poetry.
