POETRY AND EDUCATION
22nd-23rd February 2008
Keynote Lecture: "What the Poem Wants"
Michael Dennis Browne
".... the poetic process from the inside—what the writing of a poem asks of a poet, how one improvises, how wide the range of considerations is and of what this range consists, at least in part (since it’s an endless topic), including rhythmical energy; playfulness; imagery; intuitiveness; language; the poem as an opportunity for the reader to imagine; the poem as a sequence of imaginative decisions (irrigating, not flooding, the reader); self-collaboration and the art of revision; the initial subject and the generated subject; taking risks; the value of memorization; the role of sound; the role of memory; etc!
