This unit explores further the established forms of poetic production, while also encouraging students to innovate and challenge the bounds of conventional modes of expression and presentation. Students will be exposed to a variety of older and contemporary written artefacts, as well as text employed in a variety of other media. Students will apply their skills of critique and analysis, appreciation and emulation in order to understand lineages from within and beyond which innovations and creative interrogations occur.
