Seeing the World Through Poetry with Jeremy Voigt: "See that I see"

Class/Workshop, Poetry Reading/Spoken Word

Poetry is often described as a way of seeing the world, and this class will focus on this notion exclusively. We will read poems by Robert Francis (title comes from his poem, "Summons"), Robert Frost, Jack Gilbert, Jane Kenyon, Spencer Reece, and others to discuss how poets use image and form to help us see the world more clearly. We will read, discuss, and write original poems.
