Quest Courses – Spring 2023 / Literature / CONTEMPORARY POETRY

Coordinators: Martha Drezin, Mary Ann Donnelly, Frieda Lipp

So many say, “Poetry is just not for me.” It has always gotten a bad rap – called highfalutin and indecipherable. In this class, we believe the opposite.

We think poetry is for everyone and encapsulates our experience on earth, opening a window into what it means to be a human. You are invited to tell us in class what that poem means to you, and to discover what that poem means to the person next to you.
