Praise Poems and Odes (ZOOM)

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

All Levels | This course is completely celebratory! We will write praise poems and odes, which comes from the Greek “aeidein” (to sing or chant). In J. A. Cuddon’s words, an ode is “a full-dress poem.” Full of fervor, we will consider the ode as an address to a person, event, object, or something even more ineffable. Along with writing our own odes, we will read traditional and contemporary odes from Ross Gay, Lucille Clifton, Aimee Nezhukumatathil, and more.
