ONLINE The Imagist Poets
Many poets associated with the Imagist movement have familiar names: think Ezra Pound, TS Eliot, William Carlos Williams, and HD. Many of us have heard about the red wheel-barrow wet with rain, the plums in the ice box, or the white petals on a wet, black bough. Who were the Imagist poets and what were they trying to achieve? In four weeks, learn about the Imagist Movement through the lives and work of its major poets, focusing on a different poet in each class. Writing prompts will let us time-travel through our pens or keyboards to their lifetimes, joining them at crucial, famed moments of their history and writing poems inspired by their example.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
