Robert Frost said, "A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom." We might say the delight comes from the ways that poets play with words and use language to create word pictures that speak to the heart. Then, it is that message to the heart that brings the wisdom. This course will begin with a study of the language of poetry, then move on to looking at how poets use the tools of poetry to create their works, and end with using that language and those tools to study some of the world's great poems. Let's begin that journey!
