The Ancient Greek love poets had an epithet for Eros – limb-loosener – describing a force so powerful it dissolves the joints and disjoins the body. In this course, you will turn to and loosen three stages of love poetry in the Western tradition, developing your own writing in the process. Three full-day courses: Sundays 21 April, 5 May, 19 May, 10am – 4pm You Will Learn: Ways into depicting subjective temporality and triangular circuits of desire Ways into voicing love-worn cynicism What paraclausithyron is, and how to engage with it Legacies of classical poetry and deviations from this legacy New possibilities afforded by love poetry Ways into voicing domestic intimacy Ways into voicing non-erotic love
