Music: It don’t mean a thing (if it ain’t got that swing)
Sappho wrote: Mere air these words, but delicious to hear.
The lyricism of language is one of the great joys of poetry. Rhyme, rhythm, repetition. Speed, pacing, hesitation. Sounds that are sibilant, sonorant, nasal, guttural, liquid, fricative (isn’t it fun just to say these words?). And even more exhilarating to bring the power of sound into our own poems. With the inspiration of a broad array of poems, we’ll become more aware of the mouthfeel of words. And you’ll learn specific techniques to create more lyrical language.
3 hours on Sunday | October 1 | 3-6pm ET | $120 ($96 for Members)
