Learning How to Live: Exploring the Imperatives in William Stafford’s Work

Deeply inspired by philosophers, William Stafford often used poetry to teach us how to live: “Your job is to find what the world is trying to be.” In celebration of the Stafford Centennial, this Literary Arts seminar will explore the imperatives in Stafford’s work, the rich legacy he has bequeathed to help us on our journey. Together we will remember and discover: “we must find something forgotten by everyone alive.”
