These four American poets are popular and provocative. Collins and Gluck are recent poet laureates. Millay and Oliver are widely read. This course will open a door to their work. The approach is not technical or academic. The goal is pleasure and insight for everyone. If you think poetry is generally dull or irrelevant or obscure, this course will surprise you. We will read one poet each week. If you come to the end of the fourth week wanting more, the class will have achieved its goal. [R, D] (Manual of readings to purchase)
