Description

    We will endeavor, in this course, to encounter poetic speech. We will do so from both sides—as speaker and as hearer, as writer and as reader. The guiding intention of our discussion will be the development of an understanding of what poetic speech has been and might now be.

Grading

    Primary responsibility is to write 12 poems over the course of the quarter. Secondary grades come from participation and a few small assignments.

Texts

    Selected Poems, Mary Ruefle
