Poetry as a Waking Dream

In many poems, dream imagery and archetypal journeys or predicaments create a state similar to that between sleeping and waking. We’ll read dream-like poems to serve as models from writers such as Mahmoud Darwish, Rodger Kamenetz, William Blake, and C.D. Wright and then write in class, focusing on using associations and imagery to craft poems whose resolutions arise from dream logic.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
