Lost Classics: Critical Selections from John Hollander

Date and Time: 
Tuesday, October 28, 2014. 06:00 PM - 08:00 PM
Meeting Location: 
Humanities Center Boardroom
Meeting Description: 
Please join us on Tuesday, October 28th, at 6-8pm in the Humanities Center boardroom for our annual Lost Classics event, in which we revisit a neglected but important contribution to poetry criticism.
 
This year's event is on John Hollander, the influential twentieth-century American poet, anthologist, and critic. The formalist critic and long-time Yale professor was known for his precise attention to the intricacies of poetic form and rhythm (epitomized by the classic work Rhyme’s Reason (1981)). For this session in the Workshop in Poetics, we will read three excerpts from Vision and Resonance: Two Senses of Poetic Form (1975): “The Poem in the Ear,” “The Metrical Frame,” and “The Poem in the Eye.”
