“Reading poetry is an adventure in renewal, a creative act, a perpetual beginning, a rebirth of Wonder” (E. Hirsch).

We will read and analyze a wide range of poems through lectures and discussions. Our text is The Seashell Anthology of Great Poetry, ed C. Burns, Pub. The Seashell Press 2011- The book is out of print but still readily available new ($15)

A very worthwhile supplement is The Essential Poet’s Glossary by Edward Hirsch, Pub Houghton Miflin 2017
