The goal of this talk is to help you fall in love – or more in love – both with poetry and with love itself. With a symphonic integration of all the resources of language, great love poets take the most elusive nuances, thrills, mysteries, and motifs of love and throw them into sharp relief. During this talk, you will see these facets illumined by such timeless poets as Tennyson, Donne, Millay, and Browning. You will experience the power of poetry to sharpen our vision, intensify our feelings, deepen our souls, and expand our capacity to love. Recorded live at OCON 2018.
