All Levels. This class will be in conjunction with Terrance Hayes’s Word Works lecture, in which the National Book Award-winning poet will look at a poem from each of the late poet Lynda Hull’s three books: Ghost Money (1986), Star Ledger (1991), and The Only World (1995). The poems demonstrate the ways a poet can develop themes and strategies from one book to the next. Hull’s poems about music and musicians, in particular, show how a poet can both accept and challenge his or her obsessions. Exercises and discussions in the class will concern poetry and music.
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.
Terrance Hayes is the author of How to Be Drawn; Lighthead, which won the 2010 National Book Award for poetry; Muscular Music, which won the Kate Tufts Discovery Award; Hip Logic, winner of the 2001 National Poetry Series; and Wind in a Box. He is a professor of English at the University of Pittsburgh, in Pennsylvania.
