Words That Matter

First-Year Seminar Program 111

Usual Description

Through intensive study of poetic language - language, that is, at its most concentrated, deliberate, and artful - we will seek to become more critically aware of language in general. How do words matter? How do they shape our sensory, emotional, and social experience? What is literary language ‘for’?  Readings will be mainly in lyric poetry, but will also include some essays and novels.
