"We look to understand how measure and musical effects are deployed and felt in poetry and prose. The class is an extension of the idea that a poem is a combination of its sound and sense. For us there is no separation. Considering music and prosody we search for how each poem, song, or text we read seeks to find its own measure or sound, poem-by-poem." — Visiting Assistant Professor of English Thomas Devaney
