Anecdotes of the Jar: Create a Tiny Universe in Less Than 10 Lines [Dorothea Lasky — Cancelled]
Do you ever wonder how a poet makes a perfect poem in less time than it takes most people to say hello? Well: us, too. We’ll explore some great short poems by H. D., Jack Spicer, Emily Dickinson, Gertrude Stein, Lucille Clifton, Ezra Pound, Wallace Stevens, and James Schuyler and try to uncover how these poems become tiny universes and not just short poems waiting to be longer. We’ll write our own small poems, too, inspired by these poets and others, and sparked by some real life miniature objects and things.
