Between Page and Screen in class work

You’ll each be assigned one page or one poem so that the class will cumulatively give a reading of the whole book over the course of an hour. Even so, work with a partner on your poem so you can generate as many ideas as possible.

Keeping in mind that this is another experiment with what writing or poetry could look like if it exploits the capabilities of the digital, take a handful of minutes to think over:

  1. Why is this book titled “Between Page and Screen”?
  2. Go to the Oxford English Dictionary through the CU Libraries homepage; make a list of some etymologies of the words “page” and “screen”. Now read/interpret your assigned page or poem a) in relation to the title and b) in relation to the two etymologies.
