Poetry Discussion Group
September 10, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Monday 10 September, 6-8 pm
120 Main St.
Join us each month as we meet to read and discuss the work of a poet. Open to all. No experience or preparation necessary. Copies of the poems are provided. These casual discussions are a great way to expand your knowledge of and appreciation for poetry.
Our poet for September is Mary Oliver. From the Poetry Foundation website:
“Poet Mary Oliver is an “indefatigable guide to the natural world,” wrote Maxine Kumin in the Women’s Review of Books, ‘particularly to its lesser-known aspects.’ Oliver’s verse focuses on the quiet of occurrences of nature: industrious hummingbirds, egrets, motionless ponds, ‘lean owls / hunkering with their lamp-eyes.’ Kumin noted that Oliver ‘stands quite comfortably on the margins of things, on the line between earth and sky, the thin membrane that separates human from what we loosely call animal.’”
Note: We normally meet on the first Monday of the month. This month’s date was changed because of the Labor Day holiday.
