Literature

The format for this class has changed a little in that there will not be so much emphasis on reading and answering questions from the book - rather there will be questions and discussion arising from watching good films and series based on the books. The emphasis will be more on the visual activity and just a general encouragement to read the book for your own personal pleasure. I have done this to reduce my workload and perhaps my students as well. Also there will be other authors besides English authors i.e. Australian and American. Thursday
In this course participants have the opportunity to engage with a local writer who wants to inspire you to find that hidden novel within. Learn and discuss basic techniques that can be used to begin a journey that may last a lifetime. During the 10 week course the focus will be on a series of units that will discuss basic aspects, pitfalls and approaches to adopt that will open up the creative process to you…..and maybe, the production of a gem that deserves publication. Thursday
Learn about the development of poetry, the poets and their poems from earliest times to the present and the ways in which they structured their thoughts to present their work. Read many poems from many sources in varied styles. Write poems of your own in different styles and have them published in a class anthology. Discuss poems created by you and your classmates: why you chose the topics, the use of descriptive words, how to illustrate your works, poems from the past that affect you, and different English language poetic styles from all over the world. Tuesday
This course is a one term contraction of the whole year program entitled "Poets' Corner", but all programs deal at varying depths with the poems of noted English, Australian, American and other poets alongside the major types of poems, stanzas, the mechanics of poetry and fundamental poetry skills and devices examined through various historical periods. Wednesday
