Description
Robert Frost once said that "poetry begins in delight and ends in wisdom." In this course, students will both delight in and become knowledgeable about the art of poetry. They will read not only with a critical eye but as budding poets, learning about a variety of different poetic forms, styles, and voices in order to craft their own. After familiarizing themselves with this array of expression, students will then build a creative portfolio throughout the semester inspired by these subjects and styles. Classes will combine a discussion of nightly readings with writing exercises and workshop days. Students should expect to give oral presentations about specific poets of their choice and to share their own poetry with the class. The course culminates with a public reading for the school community and a creative portfolio of their own poetry
