toward a poetry-centered curriculum
this morning after i had nursed the baby back to sleep, i argued with myself about the benefits of taking a walk in the dark + rain. i finally got up + dressed + out the door. the grey sky was beginning to lighten, mist still on the West Hills.
finally back home, i pointed the girl to her cereal, poured myself a cup of coffee, and looked at Twitter. as if to reward my diligence in walking, i happened upon a poetry discussion in full swing!
Question that struck me today: if you can have a Latin-centered curriculum, why couldn't you have a poetry-centered one? How wd it look?

this is just the sort of question i think we should be asking ourselves. here’s more of the conversation via Storify–it’s a graduate course in poetry + curriculum design!
