We will explore the richly varied facets of ekphrastic poetry – pieces written in response to works of art, including paintings, photographs, sculptures and installations. This seminar will give you the opportunity to examine notable poems – ancient, modern and contemporary – and the artworks that have inspired them, before trying out some of the different approaches and techniques in your own writing.
