1 Fall 2020 O'Brien, Geoffrey G.
This course will be taught asynchronously.

Description

The purpose of this class will be to produce a collective language in which to treat poetry. Writing your own poems will be a part of this task, but it will also require readings in contemporary poetry and essays in poetics, as well as some writing assignments done under extreme formal constraints. In addition, there'll be regular commentary on other students' work.

All readings will be drawn from a course reader.

Only continuing, upper-division UC Berkeley students are eligible to apply for this course. To be considered for admission, please electronically submit 5 of your poems, by clicking on the link below; fill out the application you'll find there and attach the writing sample as a Word document or .rtf file. The deadline for completing this application process is 11 PM, THURSDAY, APRIL 30.

Applicants will be informed, by email, of the results of their applications by May 31. No late applications will be accepted.

Although its original meeting time of TTh 12:30-2 will still appear on Cal Central and the Berkeley Academic Guide, this class will be conducted totally asynchronously, so there will be no time conflicts with other courses.
