Weekend Intensive: Poetry When It Counts—Weddings and Funerals

$205.00 Members
$230.00 Non-members

We've all been there. It's a wedding or a funeral and someone gets up who has decided it's time—even though they have no training or skill—to recite an original poem about the bride or the deceased, and it sounds like someone hitting a piano with an axe. The bottom line is that good intentions aren't good enough when you're trying to rise to such an important occasion. Accordingly, this course will look at the tradition of the wedding poem ("epithalamium") and the elegy, examining some of the very great ones and then imitating them, so that when your time to offer one arrives, you are prepared.

Please Note: This class will meet Friday from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, Saturday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM and 2:00 to 4:00 PM, and Sunday 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
