Introduction to the Writing of Verse

English 43B

Section: 1
Session: D
Instructor: Robinson, Jared
Time: TWTh 12-2:30
Location: 250 Dwinelle


In this brief but intensive workshop we will think about poetry as a practice of making within and against "language". To this end we will be both writing and reading poetry that navigates compositional rules ranging from the rhythmic and syllabic to the psychic and ekphrastic. There is no prior experience in poetry required for this course.
