Poetry and Insight
ENGL 269
Fall 2006 not offered

Poems are acts of imaginative and intuitive knowing. It takes --imaginative and intuitive powers to produce poems and also to read them fully. In order to explore how imagination functions, we will read a selection of British and American poetry in the tradition of Blake, Wordsworth, and Coleridge, and prose works on the nature of what Douglas Sloan has called ¿Insight and Imagination.¿ Attentional exercises will provide first-hand experience of students' own capacities for "insight-imagination." Students will keep a journal monitoring their experience with the exercises and will also write essays on course themes.
