poems and the end of the World
Led by Caylin Capra-Thomas
In this class, we will explore how poetry can be used to navigate change, generational shifts, modernity, and the threats to humanity, real or imagined. We will read poems that address these anxieties, and we will write poems that respond to them or embody our own.
This course is meant to serve as both a critical exploration as well as a cathartic exercise. Students will come away with an understanding of how poets are creating work about and in the face of various endings int the past and hypothetical future. As this class will follow a workshop format, students will receive take-home prompts, write their own poems, and bring them to class. In class, we will share these poems, and students will give and receive feedback. Students will also receive written instructor feedback.
