2394 - Reading Poetry: Three Great Twentieth Century Voices
We will read from the works of three extraordinary twentieth century poets: Pablo Neruda (Chile, 1904-1973; Nobel Prize, 1971), Wislawa Szymborska (Poland, 1923-2012; Nobel Prize, 1996), and Yehuda Amichai (Israel, 1924-2000). All three were profoundly affected by various major crises of the century (wars, revolutions, Holocaust), and yet all wrote accessible and sophisticated poetry celebrating the ordinary and commonplace. The instructor will not lecture. Classes will be devoted to reading poems aloud and talking with each other about them. Facilitated Discussion
