This course will engage in close readings of several poems each week from English and American literary traditions. Poets read will include William Shakespeare, Adrienne Rich, and William Wordsworth, among others, with each class focusing on specific themes such as innocence and experience, love and loss, and nature. After a review of important literary terms such as diction, syntax, and meter, we will examine the formal and thematic elements of the selected poems. The instructor will provide photocopies of each week's readings.

John Noffsinger earned a Ph. D. in English from the University of Virginia, specializing in the 19th century English novel. For 38 years he taught literature and writing in Virginia independent schools.
