This class is for anyone who might want to explore, appreciate, and enjoy the vast and inspiring world of poetry. The general approach by the teacher / facilitator will help guide the class to meet the needs and interests of the participants through a dialogue / discussion method. Possible topics could include the creative process of the poet which would be helpful to any imaginative thinking and any artistic endeavor. Or the exploration of the interesting poetic heritage, or an analysis of what creates a poet’s work of art by looking at the wide range of work from classic poets like Walt Whitman to song lyrics by Bob Dylan to often unappreciated poets like the thirteenth century mystical Persian poet Rumi.
