The Poetics of Performance

Listed in: English, as ENGL-329


Christopher A. Grobe (Section 01)


Poetry is not merely a written form; it is an oral art and a prompt to performance.  Students in this course will learn to use “close listening,” as well as the embodied experience of performing poetry themselves, in order to access poetic meanings that are unavailable through silent reading alone.  This course will require both written analyses and performed repertoires of poetry.  No prior performance experience is required.

Limited to 25 students.  Fall semester.  Professor Grobe.
