« back to classes page
Explore a number of very important poets and examine several types of poetry writing forms. We will investigate an assortment of short poetic works by such writers as: William Butler Yeats, Langston Hughes, Robert Frost, Maya Angelou, William Carols Williams, Emily Dickinson, and T.S. Elliot, among others. While it is not required, students will get the opportunity to write their own poetry. This course has been known to produce some very interesting and fun conversations about poetry. So, even if you do not want to write original poems, the discussions alone will be very entertaining. Students will need to purchase the book The Joy of Poetry by Jacob Sylvester available online.
