Craft Class on Allusion with Rachel Hadas via Zoom

ALLUSION: poetry as conversation. The late poet Rachel Wetzsteon, author of the entry on Allusion in the Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics, observes that allusion in poetry mitigates our loneliness. How does allusion work to make poetry more expansive yet intimate, inclusive and informative all at once? We’ll look at a few examples and also consider participants’ work with allusions.

This is a one-day Master Class taught on Zoom and capped at 17 students. Tickets are $124. Please register at:
