Falling in Love with Poetry

Lisa VanDamme

Presented at: OCON 2018

Date: Jun 29, 2018

The goal of these lectures is to help you fall in love—or more in love—both with poetry and with love itself. With a symphonic integration of all the resources of language, great love poets take the most elusive nuances, thrills, mysteries, and motifs of love and throw them into sharp relief. In this course, you see these facets illumined by such timeless poets as Tennyson, Donne, Shelley and Keats. You will experience the power of poetry to sharpen our vision, intensify our feelings, deepen our souls, and expand our capacity to love.
