About this course:

In challenging times like these, we need poetry more than ever. This discussion group examines two exciting collections, The Poetry of Impermanence, Mindfulness, and Joy and The One Hundred Best Poems of All Time. Both offer a cornucopia of delights, featuring the poetry of Whitman, Blake, Keats, Shakespeare, Frost, Dickinson, Donne, Yeats, Cummings, Basho, Collins and many others, celebrated and new. And every poem on the reading list is selected for its clarity, inspiration, insight and pleasure. Fear not!
