Workshop Leader: Rose Strode
In literature and myth, winter is often portrayed as a symbol for death, while spring is considered a time of joyful rebirth. Yet both seasons offer beauty and danger, while the transition between the two can be particularly precarious -- for wildlife as well as for human beings. In “Winter Into Spring,” instructor Rose Strode leads discussions of poems that explore the winter, the spring, and this important transition from the state of dormancy to the state of new growth -- and the risks entailed in this change. Participants will explore work by Louise Gluck, Arthur Sze, Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Sharon Olds, Ellen Bryant Voigt, Robert Frost, Ross Gay, and others to learn each author’s perceptions of the changing seasons, as well as the tools of craft used to convey the world of the poem. Writing prompts inspired by the readings will help participants to fully examine the seasons as an expression of change, as well as the ways poetry reveals our human connection to the world. All lovers of poetry are welcome.
