We examine what good poets have traditionally wanted their readers to know about such things as metre, diction, syntax, rhyme, other sound effects and figurative language. We explore what sensitive, historically-informed and imaginative reading is like and identify the kinds of literary competence needed to make it more fully possible. (This is a double course which can only be taken with Hb3.)
