How do I love thee? Let me count the ways - February 10
Anyone who’s seen a Warner Brothers cartoon is familiar with this line from Browning’s famous Sonnet 43, written over 150 years ago. But Browning is just part of a tradition that goes back millennia. From the ecstatic poetry of the Sufis in the 13th and 14th century, to the epic grandiosity of Victorian England, to the edgy sexuality of Beat poets in the 20th Century, love, romance, and passion have inspired some of the most important works of literature in human history. Now it’s your turn! As the famous Walt Whitman put it, “the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.” This workshop hopes to inspire you to contribute your verse (or verses!) to the “powerful play,” of love poetry, with an eye towards the storied history of poetic romance.
