|ENGL 281 - Intro Poetry & Prose Workshop|
This course will serve as an introduction for students who are new, or fairly new, to the art of poetic composition. We will explore the basic components of the poem: the word, line, stanza or strophe; metrical patterns, rhythm, & acoustic structures; the language of figuration (metaphor and simile); the positions of speaker and addressee; problematic notions such as the “voice” and the use of conversational idiom; and the place of emotion, personal experience, memory, the senses and sensation, and other texts, in composition. Our study of poetic form will meander from the conventional verse of the British and American tradition to more recent developments in experimental writing.
