Punctuation: A Poet's Dilemma

Saturday, March 3, 2018 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

When it comes to punctuating poems, opinions vary widely. Some poets are as careful and correct as T.S. Eliot, while others, like W.S. Merwin, have gotten rid of punctuation altogether. In this workshop writers will discuss what traditional punctuation can achieve and whether syntax and line breaks are an adequate substitute. Participants will explore in depth the role played by the period and the comma, and will take a look at some of the more unusual punctuation marks that poets have invented to suit their own purposes. By looking closely at a few poets who turned away from conventional punctuation at some point in their careers, participants will be able to judge whether and how to punctuate their own poems.
