Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I took this class Spring 2016, with McKinney, she made this course interesting because we focused on modern poets such as; Elizabeth Bishop, Ezra Pound, and Claude McKay. Ms. McKinney brought to life these poets as we studied their work and helped me to be more introspective into the meanings of the messages the poets were conveying.
My favorite part of this course was reading and comparing Claude McKay and Langston Hughes. McKay and Hughes, both inspired poets during the Harlem Renaissance had different perspectives of the world around them. How they saw society through their eyes was reflected within their writing styles.

Advice for students:
To any future "Intro to Poetry" student, I would recommend that you always come to class with your reading material and read the assignments that are given. Poetry professors love class participation and discussion.
