ENGL 32300 Advanced Poetry Writing: Without Lightning, There's No Thunder

Rock or stone? Ghost or specter? Sky or firmament? Lake or pond? Leaf or tree? Curse or spell? Song or incantation? Sound matters. Rhythm matters. Words matter. Is she wonderful? Is he awesome? You can do better than that! Let’s explore language under pressure, language that knows it’s different, the language of special occasions: weddings, funerals, songs, and prayers. When the ordinary just won’t do, you’ll always have poetry.




ENGL 21400 or ENGL 21500.
