Unwrapping Poems: How to Read Poetry for Pleasure
Instructor: Christa Romanosky
Cost: $108 Members | $120 Non-Members
8 Wednesdays, April 09-May 28, 2014 | 9:00 AM-10:30 AM LIMITED TO 12 STUDENTS.
Get a “toe in the water” exposure to poetry. Learn how to read poetry, from Ancient Greek poems and Shakespeare’s sonnets, to old favorites like Whitman and Frost, to contemporary poets like Rita Dove and Natasha Trethewey. In this course, we'll discuss writer intent, reader interpretation, basic craft, and form. Students will gather tools for reading new poems and enjoying and understanding them on their own.
