Jennifer Barber - March 21st
 The Music of Syntax

***This workshop is sold out. If you want to be on the waiting list, please e-mail or call Alice Kociemba***

Donald Davie, in his classic book, Articulate Energy, describes the syntax of a poem as its “silent music, a matter of tensions and resolutions, of movements sustained or broken, of ease and effort, rapidity and languor.”  In this workshop, we will examine some of the different ways that syntax operates in a poem.  We will use works by contemporary poets as examples and complete some exercises that involve experimentation and play with syntax.
