Course Description

Serious poetry meets pleasure in three poets of our generation.  Edward Hirsch's poems are meticulously crafted. His poems run a gamut of subjects, from the everyday to contemplative. Fresh revelations and gentle self-effacing humor help to draw us into his world. He offers odes to insomniacs and tributes to branch libraries. He celebrates the life of the average and extraordinary person. For five decades, Alicia Ostriker has been a celebrated poet and scholar.  In The Old Woman, the Tulip, and the Dog, we read poems as thought provoking as Plato's Dialogues. Here a herbivorous philosopher, a plucky dog and an unapologetic grandmother contemplate the big questions. The dog often has the final say. Michael Waters, our third poet, writes richly musical poems, filled with sensory delight and wisdom. His subjects range from jazz to imagining God. In animated discussions, we will enrich each other's experience of these terrific poets. Facilitated DiscussionListening to Music or Other Audio
