Class: Roger Housden - Poetry to Change Your Life
Three Tuesdays: Oct. 9, 16 & 23
Poetry is prophetic speech, a spoken epiphany. A good poem gives voice to feelings, thoughts, and intuitions in us that we may have sensed the presence of, but never knew how to say. This is poetry’s power: it summons the best, the deepest of who we are, and captures it in language.Roger will explore some of the world’s great poems, and with the help of simple exercises and reading aloud, the group will reflect together upon the echoes, meanings, and relevance they have for our own lives. Poetry phobics are as welcome as poetry lovers—the point is not to study poetry, but to use it as a means to explore our own authentic feelings and perceptions.
