    Why study poetry?

    Because Christine is teaching it

    Four Arts of Language?

    Traditionally the 'language arts' (artes sermocinales, starting, I think, with Cassiodorus) were the Trivium: grammar, dialectic, rhetoric. To the functions of listening, speaking, reading, writing, we might add 'thinking' perhaps!
