MARY KATHERINE WAINWRIGHT. 2 CLASSES: TUESDAY DECEMBER 11 AND THURSDAY 13. CLASS 1:00 – 3:00, SOCIAL HOUR 3:00 – 4:00. 425 PESOS (INCLUDING SOCIAL HOUR SNACKS).

Poetry is the most loved and at the same time the least understood of all literary genres. In this course we will read and discuss some of the most famous of English language poems, using tools from the poet’s toolkit: rhyme, meter, imagery, symbolism, metaphor, and others. During the course we will also focus on important poetic forms: sonnet, villanelle, imagism, dramatic monologue, and others. You will leave the course reconfirming your love of poetry or, for others, a better appreciation of the genre you might not have understood.
