Is there an “American” poetic voice, and if so, how might we find representative expressions of this contribution to the world?   In this four week class we will read a variety of American poets ranging from Whitman and Dickinson to Frost, William Carlos Williams, Robert Lowell, Stephen Dunn, Allen Ginsberg, Maxine Kumin, and several others.  Upon registration for the course, the class member will be sent the assigned texts electronically.

James Hollis, Ph.D. is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Washington, D.C., Executive Director of the Jung Society of Washington, and author of fourteen books.


The Jung Society of Washington is dedicated to nourishing the human spirit and to serving the longing that comes to us in our dreams and in moments of hardship, imagination, struggle, and creativity.  We support the exploration of our own psychic depths and the primal impulse for personality integration that Dr. Carl Gustav Jung called "individuation".  With a psychological lens, we deepen the discussion of social issues, history, and current events.  We encourage the development of greater self-awareness and creative expression—individually, in relationships, and within the community.

The Jung Society of Washington is a nonprofit educational institution. Although many of the Jung Society's programs involve analytical psychology and allied subjects, these offerings are intended, and should be viewed, as a source of information and education, and not as therapy. The Jung Society does not offer psychoanalytical or other mental health services.
