summer school

June 29, 2020

If you’ve ever felt like you jumped into the deep end of poetry, here’s a chance to put on your water wings and start over. Johns Hopkins University Alexander Grass Humanities Institute is offering a free online summer “blast course”: How to Read Poetry.

The five-week course will meet on Zoom for one lecture and one live discussion session each week, Mondays and Thursdays, from July 13 through August 14, 2020. “Through lectures on sound, image, language, and genre, you will learn what poetry is made of, and discover, along the way, poets of various national and historical traditions, from Shakespeare to Claudia Rankine.”
