While we may live in a society that favors narrative, poetry remains a vital art form that we can learn to appreciate. This course is designed to enhance the experience of reading, knowing, responding to, thinking through, and articulating ideas about poems. Key units will address the language, sound, rhythm, and form of poetry as well as explore several enduring poetic themes. Readings will span the history of British and American poetry from the early modern to the contemporary.
