Herb Levine has been sharing poems for over 40 years. He taught at Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA. More recently, he has been sharing his own bi-lingual poems in the volumes, Words for Blessing the World (2017) and An Added Soul (due out in 2020). He is also the author of books on Yeats and the biblical Psalms.
This is a class in appreciating the special wisdom that poems offer. Students prepare for class by reading the selected poems both aloud and silently. Readings are about 12 pages per week and the poets selected, one per week, have all served as Poet Laureate of the United States. The goal of the class is threefold: 1) to give participants skills to bring to any poem they might encounter, 2) to build a lifelong habit of reading poems and 3) finding poets that speak to each of us.
Readings will be emailed weekly and will be posted on the Website.
