About the Event
Livestreamed: Four encounters reflecting, reciting, interpreting, and talking through the ways you can weave the experience of poetry into everyday life. Themes include the impertinence of poems in a world of prose, welcoming surprise, the poem as travel companion, the poem as consolation (and discomfort), found poems, the shape(s) of poems, music and memory, poetry as resistance and persistence, and of course the perennials—love, sex, and death. Selections mainly from 20th and 21st century American poetry, but also world literature of the past two millennia. A surprise visitor or two.
Tuesdays 7pm, Jan 19, Jan 26, Feb 2, and Feb 9. Reservations are free for the livestream of the class. The Livestream link will be sent to registrants on the day of the event. This class is made possible in part by the Citizens of Baltimore County and the Maryland State Arts Council.
