Course Description

In this course, we will undertake a communal effort to understand, analyze, and interpret poetry written by authors from a range of historical periods, literary movements, and world cultures. As we seek to understand our course texts, we will consider poetic form, syntax, and meter. We will also explore the historical, biographical, and cultural contexts of the poets themselves.
