ENG 155 Introduction to Reading Poetry 4cr

This course is an introduction to the close reading and interpretation of poetry; it is not an introduction to the writing of poetry. We will be discussing the basics of prosody--that is, the study of those qualities that make poetry different from prose, such as meter and rhyme--and we will be reading a variety of poems from a broad range of English-language poets spanning several centuries.
