Coursera MOOC Offering: Modern & Contemporary American Poetry

I am excited to announce that I signed up to audit one of the those Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) (or, what I like to call "MOOCH" because the user is kind of mooching), Modern & Contemporary American Poetry.  Sadly, it was already in progress since September 7 before I found out about it.

The course is being taught by Al Filreis, the Kelly Professor, Director of the Center for Programs in Contemporary Writing, and the Faculty Director of the Kelly Writers House at the University of Pennsylvania.  "ModPo" is described as "a fast-paced introduction to modern and contemporary poetry, from Dickinson to Whitman to the present."

I plan to review some of the poetry from the course as well as comment about the course itself in Songs of Eretz.  Stay tuned.
