Meditations in an Occupation

Proposition for Studies in Poetry No.3

Proposed Readings

Frank O’Hara – Meditations in an Emergency

Laozi – Selected Extracts from ‘Daodejing’

Proposed Location

The Free Hetherington

Propositions

1. We will begin by reading Meditations in an Emergency, and the selected extracts of Laozi out loud.

2. We will discuss the relationship between situation, occasion and the reading of poetry.

2.1. How does the situation and occasion when a poem was written affect the poem?

2.2. How does the situation and occasion when a poem is spoken affect the poem?

2.2.1. How does reading a poem aloud in a space / situation like the Free Hetherington affect the poem?

This is yours. Alter, expand, elucidate, discard?
