ModPo is a fast-paced introduction to modern and contemporary U.S. poetry, with an emphasis on experimental verse, from Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman to the present. Participants (who need no prior experience with poetry) will learn how to read poems that are supposedly "difficult." We encounter and discuss the poems one at a time. It's much easier than it seems! Join us and try it!

來自MODERN & CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN POETRY (“MODPO”)的熱門評論
Amazing, stimulating course! Well presented and thought provoking! Al and the TA's are the best!
Awesome course. This course made me fall in love with poetry even more and realise its endless scope and implications.
Any one who loves poetry or reading, as in what you think about the words your reading will enjoy this class!
A life-changing course. This massive, world-wide community never stops learning, never stops exploring. I've learned so much about modern poetry, but I've gained so much more.
Is this course free?
Are there any pre-requisites for ModPo?
Will I earn a certificate if I complete ModPo?
It seems that ModPo is an “on demand” course, and yet you talk about a 10-week “session” from early September to late November. Can you explain?
I’ve heard about the weekly live webcasts? What are these?
So is ModPo really a “course”?
Who is Al Filreis?
