Songs of Ourselves: Poetry through the Ages in Splash Spring 2015
Why has poetry stuck around so long? There are so many rules, and half the time we can't even figure out what those crazy poets are saying...Together, we will look back on some of the most famous poets and their works, from William Shakespeare to Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman, to Billy Collins, Shel Silverstein and even rap artist Eminem. We will examine why their works have endured. What did/do these poets have to say? And what can we say through our own poetry?
