Preludes: The Long Poem with Paolo Javier
Jun 21, 2017 | 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm | Recurring Event: An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on [day], happening 6 times
This class will introduce a variety of strategies of composing long poems. Participants will survey innovative approaches, ranging from the diaristic (Lyn Hejinian) to the biofictional (Fred Wah); the cataloguist (Lisa Robertson) to the pyschogeographic (WC Williams, Frances Chung); the durational (Bernadette Mayer, Gertrude Stein) to the spectral (James Merill, Alice Notley); the personist (Frank O’Hara, Vincent Katz) to the anti-imperialist (Aime Cesaire, Barbara Jane Reyes); and the text-sound textualist (Khlebnikov, John Cage) to the text-imagiste (bp Nichol, Jill Magi). Throughout the course, participants will be invited to write, draw, summon, and collage their own preludes to this marvel of poetic forms.
