Heavy as a Feather: Harnessing the Power of the Image with Angela Narcisco Torres (via Zoom)


Saturday, July 30, 2022
12:30 pm - 2:30 pm


Seamus Heaney said that in poems, small things can bear the weight of anything. In this craft class we will explore the power of the image to do heavy lifting in poems, i.e., embodying the complex thoughts and emotions surrounding human experience, whether in one’s interior life or in the world. We will look closely at how some master poets have employed the image and find strategies for our own work.
