FALL CHOICES

For the choices that interest you, mark preference for afternoon sessions, evening sessions, or one to two meeting intensives. There have been requests for more short intensives; while these offer an opportunity for a deep immersion, the struggle is to build a cohesive group in one or two meetings while covering the richness of the work. For some of the texts, I think this is particularly difficult therefore am scheduling two intensive meetings which would allow our work and momentum to move through the length of the work. For others, such as Paradise Lost, an intensive study is not ideal.

You can use the Doodle poll or simply contact me with your preferences in an email. Please complete this as soon as possible (by Monday August 27th noon at the latest) so I can announce the fall schedule with your input… the following will be scheduled (if there is interest) between the first week of September and mid-November. I am aiming for another Ulysseian spring so work in The Odyssey, Hamlet and The Portrait of the Artist are recommended if that is of interest.
