What could matter more to a poem than the poet’s choice of words? The aim is what critic Helen Vendler calls “arresting linguistic vitality.” This class will explore how a poem’s diction affects its texture, tone, energy—its every aspect, really. Includes writing activities and a resource packet.
Lunch can be purchased at a nearby deli, or bring your own.
