ENL 230 Introduction to Poetry

3 Credit(s) DI CEA
Beginning in the experience of the senses, this course will explore such subjects as figurative languge, symbolism, diction, sound, rhythm, and form as they contribute to the understanding of individual poems. Reading will include selections from both classic and contemporary works, focusing on both historical and cultural context and on individual expression. Students will also be creating their own poems as an aspect of learning to read and appreciate poetry as an art form. Assignments will include a research project involving critical commentary on a single poem, a short literary analysis, and a review of a poetry reading.  Three lecture hours per week.  Prerequisite: W-I course.
