Love is more than the ecstatic--it is in the daily actions and affections. Grief happens far beyond the focal point of a funeral. Two of our major experiences as humans happen to us again and again, yet so often poems focus on the falling in love or the moment of loss rather than how those we love and lose endure across so many moments in a single day. In this lecture we will examine poetry that uses repetition for both love poems and elegies.
