We’ll begin this 8 week generative workshop with the personal—re-examining confessionalism, autobiographical writing, and Frank O’Hara’s “Personism.” We’ll then move into the realm of the historic and elegiac—poetic modes that speak to cultures and groups. And, finally, we’ll dip into some poetry in translation with Anna Akhmatova, Arthur Rimbaud, Jean Follain, and Aimé Césaire. Our reading will include Eileen Myles, Chiwan Choi, Ocean Vuong, Angel Garcia, Danez Smith, and more. All the other logistical details are below.
