Breaking the Line [Jessica Laser & Rob Schlegel]

This class will experiment with the assumption that poems are defined by the unit of the line (even when they are written in prose). By this logic, in order to get close to poems, we must familiarize ourselves with lines—how they work, how they break, how they reveal aspects of sentences that might otherwise be obscured. We will read poems (old and new) for their uses of the line, and practice writing and breaking lines through generative exercises.
