Courses / Literature / ORAL INTERPRETATION OF POETRY

Coordinators: Art Spar, Roy Clary, Mary Ann Donnelly, Sheryl Harawitz

In a fun, creative, and supportive environment, poetry will come alive as participants read it aloud and interpret it. Class leaders will introduce an engaging list of poets. Study topics will include meter, rhyme, alliteration, and other prosodic elements that influence a poem’s “sound meaning” as we explore how to enrich a poem by reading it aloud.
