Could a meter have a meaning?  Could there be a reason for a rhyme?  And what is lost and gained in translation?  We'll think about these and other questions in this introduction to poetry.  We'll see how poems are put together and we'll learn how to figure them out.  Poets may include G. Herbert, Hardy, Housman, Dickinson, Frost, W. C. Williams, Gw. Brooks, Mei Yao-ch'en, Petrarch, Scève, Heine, Pushkin, Lermontov, Akhmatova, Tsvetaeva.  This course is for anyone who likes poetry.  All reading is in English; we'll make use of non-English originals when possible.  May be used to satisfy the literature requirement for the Russian Minor.

When Offered Fall.
