(Formerly LITR 215) Out of all of the art forms, poetry is the closest to music. Its intricate rhythm and melody often move and influence us on an unconscious level. As readers of poetry, the key is to pay close attention to the way language is used to evoke images and dreams. The purpose of this course is to give you an overview of the development of poetry throughout differing artistic and literary movements. We will always emphasize the close reading of poetry. By the end of the course, you should feel comfortable coming up with a reading of a poem that analyzes both its form and content.
