Introduction to Poetry: The Malleability of Form. This workshop will explore the development and the malleability of form by putting classical forms in conversation with the ways contemporary poets have subverted these forms (for example Shakespeare’s sonnets alongside poets like Bernadette Mayer, Ted Berrigan, Wanda Coleman and Gwendolyn Brooks). We will also read poets like Evie Shockley, Christian Bök, and Harryette Mullen who have used constraints to create tforms. Forms can be both a constraint and a liberation. In this workshop we will explore some of these issues, discuss, read and listen to students’ poems, and engage in the process of revision. This workshop will focus on student’s writing, and seeing how certain forms might speak to them and their current perspectives.

After the first week of the semester, permission of the instructor will be required in order to register for this course.

Credits: 4

In this workshop poets will deepen their knowledge of poetic forms, movements, styles, and strengthen their own voices through reading and writing poetry. Students will be encouraged to take risks and develop their own unique practices as a poet, broadening their range of expression, linguistic elasticity, formal innovation, sense of play, and writer’s “toolkit.” Through weekly writing exercises, close readings and responses, workshops, and partner exercises, we will create a space together where our investment in our own writing is intimately linked with that of our peers, where revision is a creative act as important as the process that produced the initial poem.

CRN: 1601

Credits: 4

This course will examine the ways in which poets engage, describe, and represent the multi-faceted self. Students will read and study both canonical and contemporary works in order to see how poetry engages the external world in order to better understand the inner one. We will study poetic techniques for allowing our written selves to be as complex, flexible, and three-dimensional as we are. Weekly poetry assignments and prompts will compliment close-reading and craft discussions, with a workshop component. May not be enrolled as the following classifications: Fifth Year or Senior. No pre-requisites.
