We will discuss the nature of poetry, the creative process, the elements most often present in good poems, and will read and discuss the work of recent and contemporary poets. We’ll also learn the terminology of poetry. Much of our time will be devoted to discussing the poems you write, which we’ll do both in small peer-review groups and in class workshop sessions.

Although there are no formulas or rules to follow to write good poems, we will establish some guidelines and discuss the qualities most often present in good poems, for instance–clarity, honesty, significance, control of diction, an attention to the sound of words, the effective use of figurative language, and the use of concrete and specific language.

PR: English major or minor, junior standing, and grade of C (2.0) or better required in CRW 3013 and CRW 3053

This is a reading course, not a writing course. We will read mainly modern and contemporary American poetry, and we'll read the poems closely, paying attention to all of the elements that contribute to how we experience the poem, giving special attention to the poem's structure. "Structure" will be interpreted broadly. It does not refer only to conventional poetic forms, such as the sonnet, but rather to all the structural elements - "internal" and "external" - present in a poem.
