***SOLD OUT***

Class Meeting: Wednesday, Sept. 6, from 6:00-8:00PM, in the Poetry Center Alumni Room 205.


The class will explore imagery, description and sense data, and most particularly how sense data is used in a poem, how the order of the sense data unfolds, how that sequencing can lead the reader to meanings beyond the stated subject. We shall look at techniques for reading poetry that lead us to undergo the poem as both as an action and an experience.
