Advanced PoeetryWriting 

In English 5770 we will build on your experience in English 4740 and focus on the “craft” of making a poem, spending substantial time and effort addressing the issues of poetic forms. You will write six original poems during the semester. To encourage even more your critical thinking about the forms of poetry, we will examine at least one collection of poetry by a single author who emphasizes formal verse in his/her work, thinking also about the means of organization for an entire collection of poems.
