New Fire: Reading for a Spark [Scott Cairns]
All Levels | Taking our lead from the deep reading habit of rabbinic tradition, we will be opening the texts we read, and generating new work in dialogue with those texts. Beginning with close readings of provocative, poetic texts—work by Dickinson, Borges, Rilke, Bishop and others—we’ll hope to produce responsive poems, stories, or essays. We’ll generate one or more such pieces in class, and help each other shape those new texts in ways that occasion meaning-making, thus leading to richer experiences for ourselves and for our readers.
