To study a further exploration of forms, we will look at the villanelle and the pantoum, poems whose beauty and meaning depends on “making a beautiful noise” with repetition. After analyzing some examples of the forms, the group will work together to construct their own villanelle and pantoum, and then go on to individual experiments in the form. Again, no worries–we’ve got “cheat sheets” to facilitate the creation of these poems. You do not need to have attended the formal poetry workshop in order to participate in this one.
