You don't hate it. In fact, you probably already love poetry, even if you don't know it. In this four-week condensed version of a college course, you will rediscover familiar poems and find other kinds of poetry in what might seem to be unlikely places. The goal is for you to become a more confident and well-informed reader (and writer, if that's your bent) of poetry.Dave Lucas is the Writer in Residence at the Cuyahoga County Public Library William N. Skirball Writers' Center and the author of Weather (Georgia, 2011), which received the 2012 Ohioana Book Award for Poetry. He has taught "Poetry for People Who Hate Poetry" as a SAGES seminar at Case Western Reserve University for more than two years.
