Poetry of the Land
Wednesday, Oct. 14, 7-8 p.m.
John Keats wrote that “the poetry of earth is never dead,” and, indeed, from the Georgics of Virgil, with its sections on animal husbandry and beekeeping, to more contemporary poems by Wendell Berry and Maurice Manning, the land has always been a fertile subject for poets to celebrate and mourn. We’ll read and consider four poems by Wendell Berry, Joanna Klink, Jared Carer, and Marianne Boruch. Author and poet Austin Smith will facilitate this workshop via Zoom.
