History of Midwestern Poetry

To produce a book-length study of the poetry of the Midwest. A critical review of the works of important poets who have emerged from the region since the eighteenth century which will help define the region's cultural history and its sense of cultural identity. The relationship between the poet and his regional heritage will afford a new view of concepts of regionalism, and provide a new aspect of appreciation for poets whose works, while less than first rate, still carry important ideas.
