I am not sure I can do justice to a review of this course, but I must try. ModPo is a complete immersion in poetry and poetics, working through the history of American poetry from Dickinson and Whitman up to today's writers. Amazing to do that in 10 short weeks. The personal attention and dedication of Al Filreis and his teaching assistants is wonderful, and hard to do with such a huge enrollment. Yet we each feel as though they know our names and offer such encouragement. The community of ModPo students on the discussion forums and on FB feel like close friends and colleagues, although spread over the globe. In fact, I was so enthused about this course that I signed up for three more. I recommend the course every chance I get. And bravo to Al and his group for a great great experience.
