Over the years I've amassed quiet a few book of poetry and amongst them is the Norton Anthology. It's a glorious tome with examples of poetry from the earliest known examples to modern works. I love poetry and if I had the time and money would take a course to improve my knoweldge and appreciation of it.
But, times are hard and there's precious little time to do anything, so I began to design my own course. What's the point in having a library if you don't use it? So far I haven't left the research stage, but this is a great stage to be in. Essays on versification and syntax are keeping me away from the telly and filling my notebook. When this project is finished I might even convince someone to let me teach it.
