Chapter 3. “Is this how it’s supposed to work?”
Poetry as a radical technology in L2 creative writing classrooms
In this chapter, Dan Disney speculates on those processes at work when a poem transmits into a non-native language. In acquiring a speaking position, L2 proto-poets participate in processes somewhat similar to poets using their L1, and yet particular pressures exist: how to feel like ourselves in a language we do not quite feel at home in? Exploring a heuristic methodology grounded in Creativity and Literary Studies and taught to L2 students at a university in South Korea, Disney proposes poetry as a genre that can activate inter- and intrapersonal learning outcomes while advancing lexical, systemic, and creative literacies.
