Good Poems and How to Read Them

Thursday February 11, 2021
6:30 PM


This Zoom workshop will meet on the second and fourth Thursdays in January and February. Poet and writing instructor, Zara Raab, will combine discussions of good poems and how to read them with poetic techniques. The focus will be on contemporary poets. Registration is required and space is limited.

Session 3: Telling Lyrics. Blending lyric elements in with narrative, or narrative elements into essentially lyric poems. From Vermont poet laureate Sydney Lea’s crafted pastorale of country life to the crisp, pithy, razor-edged tales of Heather McHugh, to more domestic narratives of Mary Jo Salter and Clive James. How do these poets control and vary their diction, syntax, and tone? What can lyric elements add to narrative?
