The Furniture Appears to be Dreaming

Matthew Zapruder

Matthew Zapruder attempts to, for once and for all, to define poetry.

In this lecture, first given at our 2015 Summer Workshop, Matthew tackles metaphor, so-called “poetic” language, and explores the differences between poetry and prose.

Other topics covered included Keats, chimney sweepers, Bishop, line breaks, and blue antelope.

In other words, all the essentials.
