Unlocking Sounds In Poetics

For all the facets and elements of poems, we must consider, poems begin first at the level of sound, at the level in which so much of our communication happens. Even if a poem lives only on the page, for it to be read it must interact sonically with the reader. Have you ever thought of the way the word ‘cut’ differs from the word ‘slice’? Have you ever thought of how where you break a line changes what kind sound a line ends on? In this seminar, the last thesis mentee of Tim Seibles, one of poetry’s greatest wielder’s of sound, invites you to look at the sonic home that lives inside each and every poem. Even moreso, you are invited to grab the key.

Please note: This class is an online class. To participate, students must have a stable internet connection with a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.
