Eternal Persons of the Poem [Judith Roche] — cancelled
Gods and mythic personae exist in our consciousness through their stories. Robert Duncan called them Eternal Persons of the Poem, as those who live in us as archetypes — think Helen, Odysseus, Santa Claus, the Witch, and many more. This class will explore these and write them based on myth and fairytales as told by writers like Homer, H.D., Anne Carson, Carolyn Kizer, and more. Expect to write a poem each week. There will be discussion of your writing but no deep revision.
