Description
This course will cover an introduction to the wide variety of rhythms used by historical poets from as far back as Classical Greece all the way to Shakespeare at the very edge of our Period. The emphasis of this class is on how to begin using these types of meters in English language poetry in the SCA, and some common tripping points and exercises for troubleshooting when your meter just doesn't seem to be working. Handouts provided, but students should bring note-taking materials as they prefer.
