The eleventh in a series of a basic poetics class taught by Allen Ginsberg in 1980 at Naropa. In this class he continues his discussion of Basil Bunting, Campion and Dowland. Works read and discussed include Thou Must Home to Shadow Underground and Follow Thy Fair Sun by Campion. This is class 11 of 33.

This lecture, although well recorded, seems like a small group discussion. Ginsberg plays accordion and records. The group chats about Bunting and the lyrical structure of poems related to song (and vice versa). There are a few nuggets, but overall, not much is happening in this class.
