This summer we will journey together through poetry's history with a focus on some on those who were and maybe still are less expected poets. We will trace certain elements of poetry in order to learn how it can work to different ends. With this gained understanding we will start to create poetry for our own purposes and using style and rhetoric that is informed by the wisdom and the ages.
