Designed for any poet ready to take their poetry understanding to a new level, Poetry I will introduce or reintroduce you to poems from many different eras — we’ll read Walt Whitman, Robert Hayden, Natasha Trethewey, and Joy Harjo, among many others — while providing a rich foundation for writing new poems. We’ll explore and practice many essential elements of poetry, including image, metaphor, sound, line breaks, and overall form.
