FORMAL POETRY WRITING   [Archived Catalog]
2020-2021 Greensburg Campus Catalog


Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This course reviews free verse and then introduces the student to various verse forms of poetry. Examples from many time periods will be studied; however, special focus will be placed on modern and contemporary poets writing in meter. Students will write in free verse and then in various rhymed and unrhymed forms (e.g., the haiku, sonnet, sestina, and villanelle). Emphasis will be on the experimentation with and potential of verse form, not on its perfection.
