Description
The class will look at documentation of medieval poetry. We will cover how to document the form and where it originated, how to prove your poem meets the requirements of that form, and how to document poetic devices. The class will also cover scansion and how to use it to help in writing a specific form and in documenting it. We will also review the items judges look for in a poem and briefly discuss performance. By the end of class, participants should be able to document their poems in a way that judges can easily understand.
