961: Dylan Thomas: Listening, Reading, Contemplating

February 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
11:45 AM - 1:15 PM

This short will exploit the Caedmon recordings of Thomas's fabulously mellifluous voice reading his poetry, "A Child's Christmas in Wales" among other presentations. Members will be expected to trot out their favorite Dylan Thomas poems—and will be invited to recite them. Anyone who can and wishes to apply analytic exertions to the texts or Thomas's readings will be allowed to do so. We may discuss his life. This is definitely a highly participatory—and hopefully relaxed—midwinter COVID-era course. This study group has a high class size capacity.

Class Format: Reading and Discussion

Hours of Reading: Less than 1 hour/session

Study Group Leader(s):
