Four American Poets, Part II

By Wallingford Pub... - Posted on 16 December 2008

Focusing on the poetry of four modern American writers whose work represents both the tradition of American poetry and its evolution into the twentieth century and beyond, this new four-part series is presented as independent discussions of Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Elizabeth Bishop, and Rita Dove. Within each separate session, however, themes common to all will be discussed, as well as the influence on each by the “mother” and “father” of American poetry, Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman. This series is one of the Literature for a Lifetime programs from the Connecticut Humanities Council.

All discussions will take place in the library’s Community Room. Please note the alternating afternoon and evening meeting times.
