Class—Rupture and Rapture: Zen Poetry East and West, CC 9/30-11/25

with Laura Burges and Richard Ryan
Mondays,  7:30 - 9 pm
September 30 - November 25, 2013

In this course, we will explore the poetic spirit of Zen poets such as Ikkyu, Basho and Ryokan as well as some well-known English-language poems such as Keats’s “To Autumn,” Eliot’s “The Wasteland,” and Yeats’s “Lapis Lazuli.” The class will be both instructional and experiential, encouraging students in writing their own poems as a way of studying both literature and themselves.
