The Poetry Class

Glyn Maxwell

In THE POETRY CLASS Maxwell portrays ten celebrated poets (from Dickinson to Yeats to Byron), letting them speak their own words – lifted verbatim from their poetry and prose writings – to a class that does not know these luminaries at all. Using tricks and techniques that Maxwell has used in his own teaching, THE POETRY CLASS steps into the rich recent stream of autobiographical writing, creating a story that is at once compelling, enlightening, and darkly funny.
