In this workshop poets will focus on the foundations and intricate dynamics of poetry as a writer's process. A weekly reading of a poem by each poet in the circle will serve as point of departure for discussions of the relationships of craft and expression. The emphasis is on inhabiting the quality of language; some time is spent at defining clarity, aesthetics, elegance, and eloquence. The course also covers a brief review of some of poetry's history, including metric and syllabic measures of writing.
