Visualizing Prose Poetry: Landscape, Dream Machines, and Transformation

A critical and practical exploration of the prose poem form. Zack Anderson will analyze the form’s possibilities for representing the intersection of violence and landscape. Paul Cunningham will consider the form’s inclination toward surrealistic dream logic and the avenues that such logic creates for ecologically-minded poetry. Hannah V. Warren will discuss the prose poem as a feminist site of hybridity, transformation, and counter-narrative.
