Literary Movement: New Formalist & Post-Modernism

A late twentieth century movement, Neo Formalism ratherwise known as New Formalism shaped the minds of contemporary poets like Howard Nemerov. This literary period occurred as an counter attack to the Cold War era invaded with consumerism and technology. It found a new outlook on form in terms of meter and style. Its origins came from an article titled "The Yuppie's Poet." This period addressed the ill use of free verse as a digression over the true aesthetics in poetry. Reasons for wanting such traditionalism must have occurred due to the dismay coming from the recklessness of Post-Modernism writing. Poets in this period such as Dana Gione wanted to go back to the traditional ways of meter and form. Thus, new formalist poetry exhibits old-style traditional uses in meter and rhyme schemes. For example, in the "Storm Windows" Nemerov used iambic pentameter. This period still takes prominence by the West Chester Conference, but has lessen in fame by lack of common artisitic success.
In a broader range, Howard Nemerov's life existed in the Post -modernism era. Characterized with isolation and free loft writing, Post Modernism sprang from the effects of World War II.

I dread to discover whose course or off-the-cuff remarks inspired this stew of garbled facts & bias. Or maybe no one is to blame except the (presumably anonymous) author... PS Wasn't Nemerov born in 1920?

Just a student project, Ned. Time is a difficult concept for kids.
