Modern poetry can seem impenetrable and inaccessible. This class may help give you confidence to explore a whole new world. Together we will read and discuss the poems and help each other work out ways of reading and interpreting them. This is a discussion based class led by a tutor who came to poetry through being inspired by other U3AC literature and poetry courses. Late in life I have been thrilled to discover modern poems and poets and endeavour to share this experience. For complete novices and enthusiasts alike. For those who previously took the class this year we will follow a similar format but the content will be different. Some preparatory reading is encouraged. There is no basic textbook although a brief list of helpful titles will be provided.
