ENGL 380
Fall 2019
Section: 01  
Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory, Writing
Course Cluster: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate, Writing Certificate

In this course, we will study various forms--received and organic, traditional and non--from the inside out. We will also explore the uses and effects of metered verse. By the end of the semester, students will possess both a historical and applied understanding of prosody and of each form covered. More importantly, they'll know why, when, and how some conventions and techniques work better than others, and will be able to apply what they've learned to their own poems, formal or otherwise.
