Being with Poets: Jane Kenyon
When: February 6-7, 2016, 10 to 4 each day
Where: 417 Riverside Drive, Apartment 7A, New York, NY
Cost: $325 (including lunch)
Limited to six participants
Over the course of two days we will look closely at poems by Jane Kenyon, a poet of great resonance whose quiet, naturalist details shimmer with metaphorical power. Her work is an encounter with something timeless: the precise evocation of a scene, mood or moment. Kenyon’s mastery of free verse technique meshed beautifully with the art of seemingly casual narrative. This will be a chance to consider the work of a poet who spoke truly and deeply.
