Majoring In Tupac: Shakur's Poetry
September 8 [10:00 EDT] -- Does the literary cannon that
includes Chaucer, Shakespeare, and Keats have room for Tupac
Maybe not, but the poetry of the late rapper will be the
subject of scholarly debate at the University of California
at Berkeley this fall.
According to the Associated Press, a junior will lead
approximately 100 students through the pass/fail course this
semester, and will examine the poetry that Shakur left behind
after his death one year ago.
The AP also reports that the rapper's mother, Afeni
Shakur, is hoping to publish a collection of Tupac's poetry.
