CW 210 - Form in Poetry


Prerequisites: None
Fulfills a course requirement in the Creative Writing Core Concentration
This foundation course is a critical study of the essential poetic forms (villanelle, sonnet, sestina, etc.) and how the forms relate to the contemporary voice through critical reading of established writers and appropriate texts. Through both seminars and writing workshops, the class combines the critical study of published writing and the development of student work to learn how form and the history of form creates the basis for all poetry. Students will be exposed to essential works by writers such as John Berryman, Elizabeth Bishop, T.S. Elliot, Phillip Larkin, Robert Lowell, Sylvia Plath, Frank O’Hara, Theodore Roethke, and William Carlos Williams. Creative expectations are no more than three revised poems that fully reflect the focused study of the course.
