Poem as Field – Understanding Energy in Poetry a craft talk with Jake Skeets at Special Collections at UWM Libraries

Charles Olson, in “Projective Verse,” states that poetry is energy transference from poet to poem to reader. This idea is one birthed from an understanding of land, place, and field. It is one closely related to Diné thought and lifeway. This craft talk will explore Diné understanding of world, art, and language as a means to understanding and writing poetry.   

Part of our series Native Writers in the 21st Century. Made possible with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
