Understanding Classic Poetry

Do come and join us - there are spaces available in this group.

Purpose
Critical reading and discussion of poets such as Shakespeare, Milton, Donne, Byron, Yeats, and Auden. A general aim is to read poetry with awareness of its historical and cultural implications. The group has now completed a close reading of Shakespeare’s enigmatic sonnets and continued with the later history of the sonnet form. Our current concentration is Victorian poetry of all genres, which should occupy us for the remainder of the year.

When and Where

4th Monday and 2nd Wednesday of month, 3-5 pm. Meetings are held in convenor's home.
