Rock, Pop, and the Poetic Tradition

 Professor Scott Levin has taken the traditional college poetry class and added an interesting twist. He’s combining the poetry of writers like William Blake and T.S. Elliot with musicians such as Bob Dylan and Eminem. Levin says he hopes that the Fordham class Rock, Pop, and the Poetic Tradition will lead to other Fordham professors using more pop culture and non-literary texts in the classroom. Scott Levin currently teaches at Louisiana Tech University.
