ISHU 315 - Reading Poetry Aloud


Students will read a variety of poems out loud.  By comparing what is written with what is read, students will arrive (maybe) at what is said.  If a reader can hear a poem as a living voice, as vivid as a friend talking over the telephone, and can reproduce what the friend has said either as a mimic, or as a reporter, then the reader understands the poem.  Further analysis is just that, a separate venture.  Understanding poetry is much like understanding other people:  No two poems are alike, and there are no right answers or this-is-it meanings.  By the end of the course, students will develop an appetite for reading poetry, and confidence in hearing and responding to others’ voices.  (IR)
