Title What is poetry?
Description
  • <p>This course introduces common techniques underlying free verse and traditional forms of poetry, and how it is necessary to use these techniques in order to harness what T.S. Eliot called the &#x2018;logic of the imagination’ (Eliot, 1975, p. 77). We discuss the possibility of using your own experience, but also the power of imagination, and of utilising different personae in your poems. You are also introduced to the basic terminology and practical elements of poetry – the line, line-breaks, stanzas, couplets, tercets, quatrains and other stanza lengths, rhyme, rhythm, caesura and metre. As you work through the course, the key terms we discuss are highlighted in bold. Definitions for these terms are provided in the glossary at the end of the course.</p><p>This OpenLearn course provides a sample of Level 1 study in <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/qualification/arts-and-humanities/index.htm?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&amp;MEDIA=ou">Arts and Humanities</a></span>.</p>
