Writing Alongside John Keats and Brenda Hillman

All Levels. John Keats’s poetry and letters will inspire our own writing. An anatomist of the imagination, Keats is a writer of untrammeled aspiration and precise reckoning, producing sonnets, sagas, odes, and mythologically charged dramatic narratives. For good measure, we’ll read Brenda Hillman’s Death Tractates to see how a contemporary poet responds to Keats’s lyric mandate. Texts: Keats, John. Complete Poems and Selected Letters of John Keats. Introduction by Edward Hirsh. Modern Library, 1991); Hillman, Brenda. Death Tractates. (Wesleyan University Press, 1992)
