Topic: Writing the Drama of the Self. One need only turn to Emerson, Whitman, and Dickinson to concede that American writing is, as poet Kathleen Ossip contends, grounded in the drama of the self. In a current environment of  experimentation and hybridity, the confessional mode is becoming critically revivified, as current critics and writers toss around forms that have developed in its stead — the neo-confessional.  Indeed, to reject the form celebrated by Sexton, Lowell, and Plath is to discard a genre that has the potential to humanize its readers. We’ll trace a lineage from the groundbreaking confessional writers through post-confessional poets such as Glück, Levine, and Olds, who dramatized the self through taming the ego and lyrical epiphanies. And we’ll look at some neo-confessional writers such as Natalie Diaz, Jake Adam York, and Matt Rasmussen, who dramatize facets of the self in order to interrogate cultural repercussions in our society at large.
