ENGLISH 190-A Rdng/Wrtng Poetry
This creative writing class will focus on reading and writing short poetry. We'll adopt the definition of "short" put forth in one of our central texts, The Oxford Book of Short Poems. Editors P.J. Kavanagh and James Michie set an upper limit of 13 lines (to avoid being "swamped" by the sonnet). We'll consider formal and free verse poems in English as well as a variety of work in translation. The class is primarily a creative writing course. Thus we'll draft, workshop.(ARTS,ORALCOM)
