The Elegy

All Levels | How can we honor the people and places we’ve lost? This course engages the elegy, a lament for the dead. Through generative writing exercises, reading, and discussion, we will sing of grief, honor, and hope in verse. We will read powerful elegies from Jack Gilbert, Kimiko Hahn, Gregory Orr, Kevin Young, Claudia Castro Luna, Cortney Lamar Charleston, and more.
