This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
The problem at the heart of writing a poem is the problem of dramatization. That is, how do we dramatize in language–an arguably limited means–the dynamics of thought, sensation, mystery, knowledge, and unsayability that often comprise human experience? In this class, we’ll discuss the crucial importance of syntax in vitalizing a poem. We’ll look at poems with powerful content and the syntactical correlatives the poets use in dramatizing that content. The poems will include the work of Louise Glück, Sharon Olds, Arthur Sze, and many others.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.
Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
