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):
Richard R. Palmer is a retired Washington psychiatrist with an interest in language, literature, and drama; he has led several OLLI study groups in the past.
