Understanding Poetry: Explore the Sonnet NEW!
Explore the incredible range and power of the verse form that has inspired
poets across the centuries and discover the powerful feelings, insights, and
experiences that can be concentrated into a mere fourteen lines of poetry. You’ll learn about form and structure, plus we’ll read and share fun, uplifting verse. Connect with your inner poet as you try your hand at writing a sonnet and get feedback from your classmates and instructor, a professor of English and literature at KCC. From the Renaissance to the present, the sonnet has given poets a superb vehicle for private contemplation, introspection, and the expression of passionate feelings
and thoughts. Join us to connect with other poets and discover resources for this versatile and enduring form of poetry.
