In a famous essay, theorist Kenneth Burke called literature "equipment for living," an essential mechanism by which humans make sense of and communicate about their experiences in the world. My hope for this class is that you will further develop your critical reading and writing skills in order to engage poetry as such "equipment for living." In this discussion-based course, you will have the opportunity (and responsibility) to actively participate, to contribute your perspective and insights, and to assist your peers toward a greater understanding of literature.
