Exploring Poets and Their Poetry
The second offering in this poetry series is a direct outgrowth of the participants’ desires to continue learning, writing, and digging deeper in their expanding poetry world. This second series offers more time—two hours and six weeks—to study particular poets and their poetry. Through some of the masters like William Shakespeare, William Wordsworth, and William Blake (among other greats whose names are not ‘William’!), styles such as sonnets, odes, rhyming, free verse, and blank verse will be studied and tried.
Once again led by teaching poet, Jan Brennan, the classes will combine a review of poetic devices, studying and imitating the styles of the masters, with time to develop one’s own style.
- Classes will be held at Hill-Stead Museum in the historic house’s libraries and the boardroom.
