"Testimony, Knowing, and Not-Knowing," a Craft Talk with Catherine Barnett
Poetry at Bennington—Spring 2021
OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | In this craft class we'll read poems that enact varieties of knowing. We'll also do one or two brief exercises to bring more forgetting, wondering, self-correction, and simple questioning—authentic questioning—to our poems.
Catherine Barnett is the author of three books of poetry, Human Hours (Graywolf, 2018), winner of the Believer Book Award); The Game of Boxes (Graywolf, 2012), winner of the Academy of American Poets James Laughlin Award for Best Second Book; and Into Perfect Spheres Such Holes Are Pierced (Alice James, 2004). Her work has appeared in Best American Poetry, Bennington Review, Kenyon Review, The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, Poetry, and The Washington Post. The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Whiting Writers’ Award, she is a member of the core faculty in the NYU MFA Program in Creative Writing, a Distinguished Lecturer at Hunter College and a Visiting Professor at Barnard College. She lives in New York City, where she also works as an independent editor.
