Written by Matt Whittling of IEW, this is a superb course for understanding and practicing classical techniques of poetry. This class will systematically explore such devices as simile and metaphor, rhyme and refrain, trochee and synecdoche. Students are able to comprehend and learn to apply iambic pentameter, anapest, and dactyl. Each lesson presents classic examples of each technique, exercises for understanding, and assignments for practice through imitation. Poetry memorization will also be included in this class.
A one time supply fee of $5 has been added to the first months class fee to cover the cost of all handouts for the class.
