    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you love and have a thorough understanding of the mechanics and devices of poetry, then this course will be a breeze. If however, you just have a casual relationship with the form, probably best to avoid as the coursework demands an in-depth prior mastery of the vocabulary utilized in scholarly analysis of the poems. If you can defend your interpretation though, the professor will accept it.

    Course highlights:

    As a Gen-Ed, I believe that is the main appeal for the course. The professor does accept other interpretations of a poem if you can defend it, which is huge.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always go to class as attendance is mandatory. Meet the page requirements. Try to come with or quickly gain a knowledge of advanced poetic devices for the few assignments.
