Description   Poetry is a challenging but apt medium for the
communication of spiritual life. In this course,
we will use poems to get a glimpse of what
constituted women's lives for different
contemporary American women, all of whom
prioritized religious experience. We will examine
how the poems portray women's lives. Do they do
so convincingly? How have they done so? Have
these poets overlooked vital areas of women's
lives? We will examine how these women
constructed positive views of female life: in
friendship, family, places of worship, the
workplace, and nature. We will also distill these
poems' potential to show us how to observe the
world around us, how to relate to the divine, and
how to grow more confident in our lives as
spiritual and gendered individuals.
