For some, the weight of the past is felt the moment they leave their door. For others, it is most acute in the architecture of cities, or felt through our impact upon the land, or visible inside the home, symbolised by the objects collected or inherited. The past, whether good or bad, finds its way to everything. Even the form a poem takes, becomes a layering of histories. By looking at poems by Ken Smith, Claudia Emerson, Terrance Hayes, and James Dickey, among others, this workshop, for anyone, offers practical exercises to explore and harness tensions created when the past is resurrected within the present moment.
