The Ode – Poetry of Celebration, Reverence, and Surprise

Mon, Aug 15th - Fri, Aug 19th
8:30 am - 10:30 am
Admission starts at: $135
Literary Arts Center at Alumni Hall Poetry Room • 50 Wythe Ave., Chautauqua 14722

Description

Originating in a Greek root meaning “to chant” or “to sing” and first performed 2500 years ago during the earliest Olympic Games, odes celebrated the god-like feats of Greece’s finest athletes. They weren’t “just” poems, but productions that fused dance, the pluck and strum of stringed instruments, choral chants, and singing. In this workshop, participants will infuse their poems-in-progress—or poems composed during the workshop—with athletic intensity, playful rhythms, and memorable song. We will read (and read aloud) from our own work, as well as from the odes and anti-odes of poets such as Pindar, Lucille Clifton, Walt Whitman, John Keats, Pablo Neruda, Horace, Ross Gay, Sharon Olds, and Frank O’Hara. We will conjure a home for praise, reverence for the hidden as well as the awe-full, and the surprise of authentic insight.
