This paper begins by providing an explanation of post-modernist poetry and the qualities that define the post-modernist genre. The paper then examines the poetry of several famous poets such as Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman and D.H. Lawrence and identifies the elements in their poetry that qualifies as post-modernist.

From the Paper:

"Emily Dickinson's poetry reflects the return of Romanticism in the period of postmodernism. Identified as Neo-Romanticism, this new movement in postmodernist poetry reflected her contemplative thoughts on life, love, and religious beliefs. These themes were reflections of the earlier literary movement Romanticism, and Dickinson's utilization of these themes helped her poetry be categorized under the genre associated with Romanticism. However, her poetry is Neo-Romanticist in that she also incorporated non-literary elements in her poetry, such as not using the conventional structure commonly associated and used in traditional poetry. Her use of broken lines of verse in her poems was a technique uncommon in the poetical tradition, although this uncommon technique helped emphasize Dickinson's meaning that she wanted to convey in the poem."
