Community enjoys poetic pleasures


"Pleasures of Poetry," the popular poetry discussion course held daily throughout IAP, will meet three more times during the spring term.

Volunteer poetry enthusiasts have led discussions on Gregory Corso, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Sylvia Plath since the course was extended past IAP.

Upcoming sessions include reading and discussion of poems by Mark Doty on April 12, led by Stephen Pepper, an administrative assistant in the school of management; poems by George Herbert on April 26, led by Mary Fuller, an associate professor of literature; and sonnets by Shakespeare, led by Howard Eiland, lecturer in literature, on May 10.

All meetings are held from 2 to 3 p.m. in Room 14N-417.

Sponsored by the literature department, the series is open to staff, faculty and students.
