David Wojahn – Homegrown Cosmologies: Animism and Elegy in Roethke’s “Where Knock Is Open Wide”

Posted In:Happenings

David Wojahn discusses the arc of Roethke’s “Where Knock Is Open Wide,” a piece that invokes regression as its primary tool for the poet’s attempt at spiritual rebirth. The poem exquisitely embodies a formal inventiveness and sense of spiritual yearning that derives from grand and abiding obsessions and not from mere compulsion and self-imitation. Starts at 7 PM.
