“How to Read Contemporary Poetry” is taught by Teresa Scollon. What happened to rhyme? What happened to meter? How do you read a poem that doesn’t seem to subscribe to any of the notions of so-called traditional poetry?
If you love to read but find contemporary poetry confusing, hard to read, or hard to find, this class is for you. We’ll look at a sample of contemporary poets, discuss concepts of free verse and organic form and explore strategies for reading and decoding poetry. Bring your questions for an energetic and thought-provoking discussion.
Class meets Tues. Apr. 8-29, 4-5:30pm.
$60 Member; $70 non-member.
