ENGL 222 Spring 2013 Lyric Poetry (W)

What do poems do? How do poems work and play? How do poems challenge and reward attentive scrutiny? What does close, sustained reading enable us to think, feel, and say about a poem? This course considers short poems by Frost, Yeats, Keats, Bishop, Tennyson, Donne, Milton, Shakespeare and others. This Gateway course is writing intensive, requiring four analytic papers of four pages each. Students will also memorize passages and read aloud, to hear as well as see what is happening. The goals are to encourage subtler, richer responses to poetry, to expand appreciation and enjoyment, and to develop analytic and interpretive capacity.
