Poetics of the Haunted House
Poetry can be one of the most effective tools for excavation of both personal and generational histories. In this class, ghosts of all types will be invited in and engaged with. We will examine poems by writers like Yehuda Amichai, Hanif Abdurraquib, and dg nanouk okpik, learn the mechanisms of haunting within poetry, and generate work. Students will leave this class with five workshopped poems and lists of suggested further reading and venues for submission.
