Want to revise a lifeless poem? Don’t know how?
In the final installment of this lunchtime seminar series—that uses Dean Young’s The Art of Recklessness: Poetry as Assertive Force and Contradiction as a guiding principle—we will look at two versions of the same poem as a way of discussing how to revise life into a well-crafted but otherwise flat poem.
