This group’s main focus lies on the whole genre of (English and American) poetry. Our students annotate a wide variety of poems, which differ in genre, literary periods, and style. Examples include poems by Emily Dickinson, E. E. Cummings, John Donne, Richard Crashaw, and John Cleveland. Students of this group practice the close reading of poetry, as well as the literary criticism and theory of poetry.

During the winter term 2019/20, the regular meetings of the Annotating Poetry Group will take place on Thursdays, 12:00 – 13:30 in room 465 in Brechtbau. The first meeting will be on Thursday, November 21st.
