Section Description

Did you know that Robert Frost lived and wrote here in Vermont? This state is ripe with poets! In this course, we will look at the work and lives of the many poets who over the years have called Vermont their home. Building on the legacy of Robert Frost, some of the best contemporary poetic voices such as Galway Kinnell, Ruth Stone, Grace Paley and Robert Penn Warren have been inspired by the mystical landscape of The Green Mountain State. In this course, students will learn of Vermont's rich poetic tradition.

Section Expectation

Students will study poets who have written poems that claim Vermont as their origins. Students will focus on poetic analysis while learning biography as well as some Vermont history. Text: Roads Taken: Contemporary Vermont Poetry Edited by Sydney Lea and Chard deNiord


Student evaluation will take the form of reading quizzes, discussion board participation, written assessments on blackboard, and a paper.
