One of the purest pleasures in reading poetry is the music of the language itself. Sometimes the power in that music is so profound as to overwhelm the meaning of the poem itself. We’ll read a number of poets remarkable for the music inherent in their verse: Gerard Manley Hopkins, Emily Dickinson, Ronald Johnson, John Keats, and Louis Zukofsky. Through examining their approaches to the musicality of verse, we’ll conduct our own experiments on the page.
