Who is the “I” in this poem?

Explore the way poets use their own personal experience to create their work, introducing such concepts as ‘persona’ and ‘poetic voice’, but focusing primarily on the pleasure of reading poetry.

What is autobiographical poetry? We will read and discuss various examples in English and American literature, ranging from seventeenth century poet, John Donne, to twenty-first century poet, Carol Ann Duffy, pausing to consider the lyric poem and dramatic monologue too!
