Whether in rhyme or prose, Goethe or hip-hop, poetry accompanies our lives from cradle to grave as we celebrate and memorialize the many stops along the way. In this course, we will read, discuss, critique, retell, and paraphrase German poetry; we will translate into English, transfer prose into poetry, compare translations, and perhaps write our own poems, in German, of course. And we will talk about the cultural influences that inspired and shaped poetry from the seventeenth century to the Present. Prerequisites: German 302D or equivalent.
