Many of us can recall gorgeous, memorable poems that inspired us in childhood, poems by Emily Dickinson or Robert Frost or Geraldine Brooks, poems we return to and share with friends. Grittier examples come to mind, too, as inspiring poems aren’t always gorgeous, but sometimes convey a hard truth that hits us in the gut. In this class, we’ll look at a range of such poems and discuss the inspiration and craft that goes into them. A PDF of poems will be distributed prior to the first class meeting.

Concurrent with "U.S. History Part II: The Moderns" and "The Rise of Fascism: We Need To Talk… AND Engage."
