ENG 213 Poetry

Prerequisite: ENG 101  and ENG 102 
3 credits

This course develops an appreciation for written and spoken language through the study of poetry. It focuses on the principles of poetry, the literary traditions of poetry, and the critical terminology to understand, to define, and to analyze poetry. Students will be introduced to poetry from various cultures, time periods and movements. Texts may be selected from major figures within movements during specific periods. Classroom exercises and discussions emphasize the importance of close literary analysis; writing skills introduced in ENG 101 Composition  and ENG 102 Literature and Composition  are reinforced, although the course is primarily a literature course, not a writing workshop.
