Each semester we discuss a novel, a drama, and selected poetry. The former two, with potential current relevance, will be Innocents Abroad, Mark Twain’s acerbic critique of culture and society during a journey abroad, and Thornton Wilder’s The Skin of Our Teeth, a convention-breaking, Pulitzer Prize-winning account of an eternal family out-maneuvering disasters from ancient times to the present. Poetry will be taken from The Seashell Anthology of Great American Poetry, edited by Christopher Burns. No class size limit, no pre-registration required. Reading expected, the discussion always lively.
