Poetry Journal Series

                            journal jewel cas setPoetry Journal is a series of 12 half-hour programs on three DVDs, each covering the work of classic poets. The format is a lively and informal discussion between two friends, John Herndon and Paul Christensen, both gifted teachers and critics, who share insights, analysis, and contextual background on the great poets.

The poets discussed in this series of educational videos have been selected as prominent in the curricula of colleges and high schools. The content is designed to be especially useful to teachers seeking insight into the work of great poets, as well as to self-motivated students and lovers of poetry. The programs can easily be used in the classroom, with Herndon and Christensen serving as video ‘team teachers’ or virtual guest lecturers. A brief guide outlining the content of each volume and identifying specific poems discussed is included in the boxed set.
