Wit’s End: What Wit Is, How It Works, and Why We Need It

In Wit’s End: What Wit Is, How It Works, and Why We Need It (W. W. Norton), James Geary explores every facet of wittiness, from its role in innovation to why puns are the highest form of wit. Adopting a different style for each chapter – from dramatic dialogue to sermon, heroic couplets to a barroom monologue – Geary embodies wit in all its forms. Wit’s End agilely balances psychology, folktale, visual art, and literary history with lighthearted humor and acute insight, demonstrating that wit and wisdom are really the same thing.

ERASURE WORKSHOP w/ Zachary Schomburg

This 3 hour session will introduce you to the poetic form of Erasure, which is the practice of erasing words from an existing text to generate new poetry / visual art. Together, we’ll look at published examples of erasure, and discuss what might make our own erasures successful. Before we meet, I’ll assign a brief reading which will we use to center our discussion. I’ll also provide materials for erasure, including books, random prose texts, white-out, scissors, glue, markers, etc. If you already have a text you’d like to erase, please feel free to bring it along. At the end of the session, we will all be invited to share our new erasure work with the group. All are welcome. No poetry or erasure experience…
