How to Eat a Poem: A Weekly Poetry Discussion Group

Saturday, May 30

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Learn to better understand and appreciate the wide world of poetry! Each week we’ll discuss a new chapter from the 8th edition of the book Sound and Sense: an Introduction to Poetry by Laurence Perrine. A best-selling introduction to poetry for more than 50 years, Perrine’s book succinctly covers the basics with detailed chapters on the elements of poetry, unique materials on evaluating poetry, exemplary selections, and exercises and study questions that guide understanding. With an emphasis on teaching students to read, understand, and evaluate poetry, this group will be your guide to discovering how and what a poem means, and hopefully gain a new appreciation for the art form.
