ENGL 226 - Introduction to Poetry

(3,0) 3 Credits
Prerequisite(s): ENGL 111 - English Composition I .
This course will help students to understand both the craft and the art of poetry; how poems are made and why they are valuable. Texts will range from ancient Eastern scriptures to the newest work of young American poets, from limericks to epics, from song lyrics to verse drama. The focus, however, will always be on language, form, and meaning. Students can expect, therefore, to gain not only a knowledge of the nature, history, and variety of poetry but also greater skill, insight, and pleasure as readers, writers and thinkers.
