Bard, Book, and Canto
The Poetry Group
Beginning July 8th, through the summer and into the fall and winter, The Poetry Group will meet in the Studio every Thursday, from 10:00-12:00 pm.
Any CB55+ member who wants to join us will be welcome.
As in the past, the group will discuss exceptional poems from medieval to modern, from different countries and various authors. I try to choose challenging but not inaccessible poems. In the past, we have read dozens of works by poets like Shakespeare, Wm. Blake, Emily Dickinson, P. K. Page, Sky Dancer, and Billy Connolly. Many are chosen at participants’ requests. July 8th, by request, we will be looking at some of Robert Browning’s dramatic monologues. Poems are always emailed in reading packets, in advance. You don’t have to purchase any books. This is not a creative writing class. The Studio will accommodate no more than 8 or 9 people, so please e-mail me before each session – on Wednesdays – to be sure there will be space for you.
