|“Renga in a Ring: Improvised Japanese Poetry
The renga is a linked poem, composed by a group of poets who each add a stanza in turn. The poem moves from thought to thought as more stanzas are added, with the essence of the poetry lying in the concept of ‘change’ as the thoughts develop and diverge.
The class will start with a brief talk on the history and compositions of renga as a poetic form, and conclude with the attendees collaborating together to write a renga of their own (in English, following traditional poetic forms).”
Note that we will likely have an “Artisan’s Row” or at least an “Artisan’s Corner” for those that wish to spin, weave, embroider etc while chatting…
