This course has exceeded my expectations. Not in terms of the content because I have some experience with poetry, but in terms of the distance education component. I've taken a couple of courses this way and the video presentations and the discussions between Al and his TAs are superlative to anything I have taken. It's such a pleasure to watch and listen to the discussions that it hardly feels like work. Don't get me wrong, the assignments and the interpretations are challenging but if you keep up, these things are manageable. The deeper understanding of the poems and my confidence in my own interpretations and writing about poetry are just some of the rewards. I strongly encourage anyone interested in poetry of any type to try this course! There is so much to gain and nothing to lose. Thanks Al and all the TAs for the passion, enthusiasm, and the intelligence in the discussions.
