That Big, Bodacious, Bad-ass Poem with Kei Miller

Wordsworth famously suggested that poems were "recollected in tranquillity" we often emphasize the meditative quality found in good poetry. Poems are often celebrated for their quiet elegance, their subtle contemplation of language and human interiority. This workshop, however, would like to turn our attention to another kind of poem -- poems that make much louder sounds. Through examples and exercises, this workshop will suggest ways that spectacle, daringness and volume can also be the products of elegance and craft.
