This section addresses poetic language and form. It offers practice in reading poems and skills in interpreting and producing densely figured language. Each section will focus on poetry of threw (not necessarily consecutive) centuries, with some contextualization for every period. reading will include some of the large body of critical work that helps foster analytic and writing skills; writing for the class will include both critical and creative practices.
