Poems from Late Empire with Scott Hightower

Feb 19, 2015 | 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Scott Hightower

This is a workshop about writing poems from the post September 11th, post Madrid train bombing, post-Charlie Hebdo world. The Muse and the Banshee are both welcomed. We will be looking at both historical and contemporary poems—like those of Andy Young, Cynthia Hogue, Gregory Pardlo, Peter Covino, and Steve Fellner—and considering notions of Gaston Bachelard’s “The Poetics of Space” and poem as a place for the imagination to dwell.

Scott Hightower is the author of four books of poetry in the U.S. and Hontanares, a bi-lingual (Spanish-English) collection. In 2008, Hightower’s translations from the Spanish garnered a prestigious Barnstone Translation Prize. When not teaching as adjunct faculty at NYU, the Gallatin School, he sojourns in Spain.
