I want you to think of this class as a SEMINAR. Google ‘seminar’ and you’ll find some good descriptions. However, for me, most of the pictures show groups that are too large. Our seminar rooms, in 4th year, were small, seating no more than 8 students. And I loved them! We got the prof to ourselves, we could discuss easily, and the learning was intensive. These are ZOOM seminars we’re having!
Every week, we’ll do a different poet (from my list of favourites). We may not get them all done, but we’ll have a good time getting to know the poets we study and hopefully we’ll want to finish up on our own!
So – here we go! Skim through most of these and do not let yourself feel intimidated. I chose spring as our theme because you’re in the spring of your life and because this covid spring is a strange time for you.
You’ll find here the files you can download. Try to pick out the themes and words you like best, so that we can mostly talk on Thursday and shape the course to suit you:
