TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Lawrence DeMilner

T.S. Elliot once said, “modern poetry is supposed to be difficult.” He certainly tried. Nevertheless, several of his works became touchstones of 20th-century poetry and are read by almost everyone. We will take a look at a couple of difficult ones just to see what they are made of. But mainly we will read works by some of the 20th century’s most notable writers whose poems are engaging and accessible, whose aim is to take the top of your head off, to transport you to a new place. All new poems will be online at www.OLLIatRinglingCollege.org under “Course Materials.”
Silver Member: $95; Gold Member: $85.50
