Led by Virginia Bell, Saturday’s topic will be "Making Whoopee: The Use of Idiom in American Poetry." Drawing on the poetic theories of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Tony Hoagland, we will explore the use of idiom in American poetry. Should we use idiomatic expressions in our poems, such as the old fashioned making whoopee or the more recent Netflix and chill?
