Description

Thursday, Feb. 2, 9, 16 & 23 Winter Poetry with Judson Scruton: Emily Dickinson—Pushing The Envelope, 10:30 – noon. Judson Scruton leads this 4-part Winter Poetry Seminar Series exploring the poetry of Emily Dickinson. Judson will be looking at and discussing some familiar and some lesser known Dickinson poems with the aid of new resources to see Dickinson’s poems as, in poet and critic Dan Chiasson words, a 'unique category of verbal notation, significant both for their literary power and for their physical appearance on the page.'

He is currently an Adjunct Professor of English at Fairfield University. Poetry packet available at front desk one week before the seminar begins. No charge for the program.
