How do I begin to recount the utter wonderfulness of this course. Though there have been over 30,000 participants on this - some of whom have not attended university, some of whom don't speak English as a first language, a hugely diverse range of ages and backgrounds, and yet we've formed an almost intimate community of readers who are reading some of the most complex and rewarding poems of the modern age at what I believe to be a supremely high level. I've learned as much from my fellow-students (even those who are studying poetry for the first time) as the amazing instructors. I've learned as much about myself as I've learned about the poets that formed this course. And above all, I've revelled in the extreme beauty and challenges of language at its most expressive. I recommend "ModPo' so highly (and indeed have been talking about and recommending it to anyone who cares to listen to my poetic ravings), that my recommendation is bursting out of this small white recommendation box. Thank you to everyone who made this possible.
