“Basic Mysteries”
David Meltzer seminar
on poetry & poetics
Tuesday, March 4th – 7-10 pm

Call the bookshop for reservations – 415-586-3733.
$40 tuition

David_MeltzerDavid Meltzer, a poet whose roots are in the San Francisco Renaissance and Beat eras, will explore some of the “basic mysteries” of poetry & poetics in three sessions spaced over five weeks.

David’s thoughts on the poetic calling range from the discipline’s roots in oral culture to the invention/ mythologies of writing systems, the book and the page, and the return to orality.  Some of the material covered comes from his book, Two Way Mirror: A Poetry Notebook.  Other material is from lectures originally given in the graduate Poetics Program at New College of California — exploring divination, the prophetic, Kabbalah, & the possibility & impossibility of language.
