Learn art of poetry online for free

Boston University and edX offers a free online course on art of poetry.

The art of poetry gives pleasure and invites knowledge. This course is based on a conviction that the more you know about an art, the more pleasure you will find in it.

About the course:
Poetry lives in any reader's voice, not necessarily in performance by the poet or a trained actor. The pleasure of actually saying a poem, or even saying it in your imagination-your mind's ear-is essential.

That is a central idea of "The Art of Poetry," well demonstrated by the videos at favoritepoem.org: the photographer saying Sylvia Plath's "Nick and the Candlestick," the high school student saying Langston Hughes' "Minstrel Man." Those readers base what they say about each poem upon their experience of saying it.

The course is demanding, and based on a certain kind of intense, exigent reading, requiring prolonged- in fact, repeated- attention to specific poems.

Classes start: September 30, 2014.
