Poetry Conversations



David Tomas Martinez: Distinguishing Simile, Metaphor, and Symbol

Wednesday February 20, 2019,  9:30 a.m., Skiles 010


In this talk, David Tomas Martinez will consider the role of images in the poem. “Language builds by imagery,” says Martinez, “because of this, images are the building block of many poems, and the comparative image is one of the most ubiquitous.” Martinez will distinguish the intellectual and emotional distinctions of comparative images, and help writers choose which and when best suits a poem.” The talk will be followed by a Q & A session with the poet.


This event is FREE and open to the public.
