“There are things we live among, and to ‘see’ them is to know ourselves,” wrote poet George Oppen. In this class, you’ll be learning to see by dwelling in the possibilities of the imaginative worlds of poems. You’ll be writing and discussing the work of innovative and important writers and artists as well as your own in a seminar setting.

Texts will be collections of poems as well as occasional handouts.
