Whatever its period or mood, reading a poem means dealing with its craft: rhyme and rhythm, choice of words and syntax, form and layout – and how they work together. This course explores all these elements, drawing on poets of all kinds and poetry of every period from the Renaissance to the 21st century. This is a 10 session course and must be taken with W110Am04 in week 1.
