Classic English Poetry

Classic English Poetry

13 yrs and up, $195, 14 week course – No Prerequisite

This course is a delightful introduction to the poetry of the English language with a focus on learning to understand and take pleasure in verse. While gaining the skills and nuance of reading poetry, students will concentrate on a different theme each week and study how various poets explore and challenge that theme through their poems. This is primarily a reading course, but students do have the voluntary opportunity to write and share their own verse in imitation of the week’s poems.  A wide variety of works are studied, including Shakespeare, Tennyson, Dickinson, Wordsworth, and Frost.

Fridays, 9 - 10:30 AM
