Spending Time with The Poets

GENINT 711.388

Osher (50+). This course is an overview of great poets and poetry, including segments of epics.


About this course:

Spending time with the poets is food for the soul. In this course we cover the soul of poetry over time, by reading and discussing poems by W.H. Auden, Walt Whitman, W.B. Yeats, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and T.S. Eliot among others, including segments of the great epics as well. The sojourn is meant for us to stop and smell the roses, and perhaps become inspired to write our own poetry.
