This course is a nontheoretical practicum in translating traditional formal verse. We will study works ranging from the 16th century to the present, all respecting the elements of rhyme and meter, from a variety of poetic schools and in a variety of forms. The course involves class discussion of one another's work, fidelity, matters of style, and technique with a "tune and tone" approach.
