Successful completion of ENG 101 and ENG 102 or ENG102H is required for eligibility. ENG 240H is an Honors version of the standard ENG 240 Introduction to Poetry. It aims to equip students with the critical vocabularies and techniques necessary to effectively analyze, discuss, and write about poetry. ENG 240H students gain new insights into the ways in which poems function by attending to the formal elements of poetry and discovering how poetic form relates to meaning. The class considers a variety of poetic traditions and explores how particular genres or forms have been reinvented within and across various literary cultures. Students must receive a C or better in this course for it to count towards the major.
