Postponed: Geek Speak: Amy Fuqua - “How to Read (and love!) Poetry”

Geek Speak: Amy Fuqua - “How to Read (and love!) Poetry”

Author: BHSU Communications/Monday, September 16, 2019/Categories: Events, Students, Community, Faculty, Staff

Event date: 4/2/2020 4:00 PM Export event

Where: Jonas 110 
When: 4:00PM
Description: Anyone can read and love a good poem. Poetry doesn’t require special training or secret decoder ring. Ezra Pound’s “In a Station of the Metro” is just two lines written in contemporary English. William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 130 is a highly formal poem written more than four hundred years ago. Yet, both of them deliver delight to anyone who can read sentences in English. We will read and discuss the delights of a handful of poems written in English and then—for those who wish to add some music and geometry with their art--we will explore poetic form and meter. These elements just make the experience richer.

Statement from President Nichols

It is with a troubled heart that we write this note of concern and support for the Black community. The events over the last few weeks and following the tragic senseless deaths of African Americans in Georgia, Kentucky, and Minnesota have yet again brought racial injustices to the forefront.
