This introductory level literature class is designed to help students acquire the skills for reading, appreciating, and critically analyzing poetry. This course intends to introduce the students to some basic concepts about literary technique and innovation with the scope of honing their critical thinking skills. Students will not only be guided through the inspiring world of poetry, but they will also be steered towards a deeper and more insightful analysis of its purpose. While being introduced to the origins of poetry from its solely alliterative nature through to its varied structural development, students will learn to appreciate and interpret meaning, analytically and emotionally. Individual and distinctive interpretation by each student will be the basis of stimulating discussions and debates.
