CRW 205 POETRY WRITING: INTRODUCTORY-Poetry is a genre of seeking and of inquiry. It is a genre that resists easy resolutions and instead asks of its readers that it think through the subject (and feel through the subject) rather than come to easy conclusions.  This class begins with the premise that poets are readers who have a lot to learn from each other and those who have written before them. In this class, we’ll read contemporary World and American poetry, in addition to a few introductory craft essays, and consider how the poetry of our times is seeking to think through (and feel through) the complexity that surrounds us. You’ll engage with these poems and essays, not just as readers, but as writers who are seeking to discover and harness the possibilities of poetic craft and techniques to reach your own readers. In other words, we’re going to learn from other writers’ poems; imitate them; subvert them; torque them; and surprise ourselves with the development of our own individual voices.
