Intro to Poetry & Drama

With an emphasis on close reading, LIT 126 is intended to help students develop the analytical and interpretive skills necessary for both writing and verbal critical response to poetry and drama. It is also designed to establish a common knowledge base in Anglophone literature and equip students with the vocabulary and techniques relevant to analyzing poetic and dramatic works. Finally, the course seeks to foster an appreciation and understanding of the aesthetic qualities of poetry and drama as well as a keen awareness of their place in the ongoing cultural, social, and historical dialogues that inform, influence, and inspire our human experience.
