Travel Abroad with Poetry

In this class we will explore both contemporary and ancient poets with origins outside of the United States. We’ll explore their culture, customs, history, trauma and touch on the immigrant experience. Each session will explore a different part of the world and we’ll incorporate food, music, and the poetic forms of that country into our lessons. Poetry is the language of seeing beneath the surface. We will explore: Haiku, Haibun, Tanka/Renga, Pantoum, Sijo, Landay, Sestina and Sevenling as we connect forms to content and read Basho, Rumi, Rainer Maria Rilke, Pablo Neruda, Dunya Mikhail, Rabindranath Tagore, Valzhyna Mort and others. Come travel with us!
