The Craft of Poetry

ID : 734   
« back to classes page
Readers of poetry sometimes experience a mystical connection between a poem and their own experiences. How poems do that is the subject of this bonus group. We will examine the elements of poetry: sound, line, form, meter, imagery, diction, tone, and voice. Selected poems will be used to illustrate the use of these elements by various poets. Our goal is to improve our understanding and our critical ability when reading and appreciating poems with each other. No class preparation is necessary although participants will contribute to a flexible discussion. No writing is required. This study group could be used as an introduction to poetry or could be used to supplement The World of Poetry study group.
