In The Prelude, William Wordsworth alludes to “the hiding places” of his “power,” which in his youth had “stood open,” then gradually narrowed to “glimpses,” and, with age, threatened to cloud over altogether.  While still able, he wished to “give a substance and a life” to what he felt.  In Feelings Into Words, Seamus Heaney claims Wordsworth is talking here of “poetry as divination”; of  “poetry as revelation of the self to the self”; and— so aptly Heaneyesque—of “poetry as a dig.”  Join me on this workshop adventure to search the hiding places of poetic power for the likes of Wordsworth and Heaney, and then to mine our own memories to unearth some hidden gems.
