In this craft lecture, Roger Reeves thinks with and through revelation in poetry. What do we mean when we say something is revelatory in poetry? Is it epiphany, confession, statement, or all of the above? What makes a particularly efficacious revelation in a poem? And, what is our current relationship to revelation when we live in era, in a time that eschews privacy? These questions about revelation are also tied to questions of the transformative. How do we make transformative poetry in an age where we hold nothing back? While these questions may be answered in their entirety, this lecture offers a zone of inquiry. This is where we enter.
