Women’s Poetry: Six Poets in Six Weeks


Course Description

In this continuation of our ongoing series on Women’s Poetry, we will stop to examine six poets more closely. Circling around our core question; what does it mean to talk about “women’s poetry”? We will spend each week with a single poet, and ask: To what extent do women’s lives shape their poetic output? In what ways do our poets work with or against the technical demands of poetic forms? Are there ways our poets take up language that emerge as especially “gendered”? Or, does poetic language transcend any simple question of gender? Our readings for this course will include Emily Dickinson, Anne Carson, Ellen Welcker, and others.

Open to participants of all genders. Previous courses in the series are not prerequisites.

Please note that this course has a maximum enrollment of 14 students and that TMI does not allow participants to audit courses for free.
