Matter of Life and Verse: Writing Poetry
Ended May 15

"Tell all the truth," wrote Emily Dickinson, "but tell it slant." Poetry, through wordplay and its various forms, allows us to experiment artfully with the matter of life – our loves and losses, fears and dreams, and every mundane thing in between – so as to give it better resonance, a heightened urgency, and a timeless quality. In this class, our reading and discussion of good poems will frame in-class writing exercises and the creation and sharing of our own good poems.
