The presenter will describe generic questions that might be asked of any poem before indicating what questions particular poems might call for. For example, he will present specific questions about Wilfred Owen’s “Disabled” and A.E. Housman’s “To an Athlete Dying Young.” He will then distribute copies of John Crowe Ransom’s “Janet Waking” about which to formulate questions in groups before sharing results with all in attendance.
