課程概述

This course is designed for undergraduate students who wish to begin a serious investigation of English poetry. In class we will attempt to offer students a sufficient grasp of the nature and variety of English poetry, some reasonable means for reading it with appreciative understanding, and a few primary ideas of how to evaluate it.
 

課程目標
In class we seek to familiarize students with the elements of poetry in a progresson in which each new topic builds on what preceded it.
Gradually students will come to understand and appreciate such terms as imagery, rhyme, rhythm, metaphor, simile, personification, metonymy, symbol, allegory, connotation, paradox, overstatement, understatement, irony, sound repetition, allusion, etc. They will also be exposed to a variety of genres and sub-genres of poetry such as ballad, sonnet, ode, villanelle, blank verse, dramatic monologue, and free verse.
However, the first and foremost emphasis remains in teaching students to read, enjoy, interpret, and evaluate each individual poem.  
課程要求
With a view of balancing the classic with the contemporary, an average of 3-5 poems will be analyzed in class each week. Students are required to study these poems in advance, and encouraged to form independent judgments and express their views on these poems in class.
