ENG 123 - Voicing the Verse: Poetry in Performance

This course engages the creative process of rehearsal and performance as a means to understand technical aspects of poetry such as meter and other aural effects. We will also explore historical traditions of oral poetry from the ancient Greeks to the present (but please note that there will be only minor coverage of contemporary slam traditions). Rehearsal and recitation will occur mostly in class and during studio time, but working in teams, students will also prepare and record an audiobook of poetry by the end of the semester. Students must register for a Studio. For undergraduate English majors and minors, this course satisfies the Genre (B-1) requirement.
