Thursdays, July 7, 14, 21 and 28 Summer Poetry with Judson Scruton – Savoring The Metaphors of Robert Frost, 10:30 a.m. to noon. Please join us in person for a 4-week literature seminar led by Judson Scruton, who will guide us through an investigation of Robert Frost’s metaphors. Some critics complained that Robert Frost’s folksy, rural shtick was boring or that his poetry was too brutally cynical, but for the majority of 20th-century Americans, Frost was America’s most beloved poet. In the 21st century, his stature among critics only increases. Join us for an informal discussion of Robert Frost’s wit, wisdom and life-giving metaphors. Judson Scruton MA (Johns Hopkins University, The Writing Seminars, majoring in poetry) has taught creative writing and literature at prep schools and universities. Prior registration is required. Register online or call 203-762-6334. There is no charge for this program. By registering for the first session, you will automatically be registered for all four sessions. This lecture series is made possible through the support of the Amy Quigley Memorial Literary Series.
