$100 for All 6 sessions

space available basis

We will talk about origins -- When

did poetry begin? Why do we

choose the poem as a primary

means of expression? What does it

mean to take on the identity of

"Poet?" These and other crucial

questions become the ground for

talking about the life of a poet over

time, and the relationship of poetry

to art and music. Haiku, Whitman

and Dickinson, modernists such as

W.C. Williams and H.D. -- along with

the poetry of today, will lead us to

look on the role of a poet in the

larger society.
