Craft of Poetry


In addition to covering the usual elements of prosody as handed down from English literary tradition -- meter, sonic patterning, fixed and open forms, and the shifting roles of grammar, syntax, lines, and sentences -- we will focus on Indigenous, queer, Latinx, and other historically marginalized voices, looking at how those voices engage with this tradition and how (and why) they variously reshape and/or refuse the tradition in favor of alternative prosodies and poetics.
