Class Notes

From the Instructor: Students will examine nature poetry and how poets have explored humans' interactions with the environment, the wild, and animals. By reading poetry from different historical periods (including ancient Mesopotamia, Greece and Rome and the early modern period) and written in various poetic genres, we will explore how poets from many cultures and traditions (including Dine, African American, and other voices such as those of the Olimpias disability culture artists? collective) conceptualize the natural along with issues such as climate change, environmental disaster, apocalypse, and sustainability. Assessments will include weekly short writing assignments, quizzes, an essay, and a final exam.
