This course has changed to now start in January 2019.

Come join our class who love poetry and have waited their whole lives to read Thomas' wondrous play for voices Under Milk Wood and other poems. No pre requisites except a sense of fun, curiosity and a willingness to be roiling in sound and imagery. O and before you let the sun in, mind he wipes his shoes... This course engages with Thomas' play and poetry in a way that allows all students to participate and engage. A close reading of the play and poetry is offered and questions often emerge within the class discussion that provoke ongoing and thoughtful commentary.

This and so much more will be the result of Thomas' own invitation to come closer now.
