Birds, Bees, and All Those Trees: Maine Poets Write About the Natural World - a 4-week class, Maximum15 Members, Register View Cart

Poems, like all writing, provide lenses through which readers can "see" subjects through the eyes of their authors. The concept of lenses will be the major theme of this course. Poets who write about the natural world in Maine may inspire us to see the familiar from a different angle or discover aspects we hadn't thought of before--i.e., to alter our own lenses. All of them will help us understand the natural world more perceptively while coming to appreciate the power of their language. Participants are not expected to be experienced readers of poetry. If you find yourself thinking, "Gee, I hadn't thought of it that way before," the course will have been a success.

Instructor - JUDY HAKOLA
After over 50 years, Judy Hakola has finally retired from the University of Maine English Department--but obviously not from teaching. At UMaine, she taught Maine literature courses both online and in regular classrooms and has given presentations on Maine writers in many formats all over the state, including for both PVSC and Down East Senior College in Ellsworth. Her courses are quite informal and she encourages students to be active participants through both their questions and their opinions.
