House and Universe: the Poetry of Home and Domestic Objects (The Poetry School) online course begins
May 13, 2015, 12:00 AM EDT
Why are our homes so important to us? From the way they look and what they cost, to the experiences and memories stored inside them – what goes on behind those closed doors? Over the course you will study contemporary poems set in kitchens, bathrooms, sitting rooms, bedrooms, gardens, contemplating what is this idea of home? You will explore the drama in domesticity, the importance of objects and possessions, the pull of memory and nostalgia, and the ideas of privacy and space. All this will lead to you creating a ‘house of poems’ of your own.
