Hands down the beat course I have ever taken. Al Filreis uses the Socratic method with a group of UPenn students to model a way to explore poetic form and ideas. He uses this same method on discussion boards that are like bee hives on steroids. I am sorry that the course is over but I'm still learning on my own and finding new directions through Poem Talk and The Kelly Writers House.
This course is interesting and well organized. I enjoyed Professor Struck's lectures and learned many new things about Greek and Roman Mythology. The introduction to various analytical tools to help decode these stories was interesting to me.
