Welcome poetry lovers! Join us for Poetry for Pleasure, where we will learn more about life and death, love and loss, and memory. We will discover a wide variety of poets and their poetry, some known, some less known. Choices may include poets from different cultures and eras as well as English translations from other languages. Each week a study group member selects one poet for discussion and prepares copies of the chosen poems for each study group participant. The presenter leads with a brief biography and/or critical commentary, and then we take turns reading and discussing the poems. The participations is always lively and challenging and invariably gives new insights into the work. There is no better way to combine learning with pleasure. No class on 10/09/19 or 11/27/19.
