[MEETUP] Poetry - a bag of words and a fistful of line-breaks
In the code language of criticism when a poem is said to be about poetry the word "poetry" is often used to mean: how people construct an intelligibility out of the randomness they experience; how people choose what they love; how people integrate loss and gain; how they distort experience by wish and dream; how they perceive and consolidate flashes of harmony; how they (to end a list otherwise endless) achieve what Keats called a "Soul or Intelligence destined to possess the sense of Identity."
-- Helen Vendler
The next monthly meetup of the Helsinki IN Literature Group is all about poetry. The aim is to discuss everything (yes, everything!!) about that broad topic - from can to can't, from is to isn't, which wines go best with which poems ;) ...
Bring pieces that you like, pieces that impressed you, or made you feel it.
Bring materials about poetry - analysis, history, criticism.
Bring yourselves and your inexhaustible spirit for literary exploration!!
The venue is Protected content where we'll have plenty of space to explore the subject and quite a few delightful distractions in the form of sweets, cakes, and drinks.
See you at the meetup!
