Join us for a two-session investigation of Dylan Thomas, the writer who wrote and declaimed like a medieval bard and who lives on in the American imagination as the archetypal 20th century romantic poet. Like Gerard Manley Hopkins, Thomas’ preference for sound over sense and his radical originality makes him hard to categorize and difficult to resist. Famously described as being drunk on words as well as whiskey, Thomas is subversive, cryptic, allusive and rhapsodically and verbally baroque. In language that rolls, lilts and lolls, he constructs rhetorical confections that can dazzle and defy both simple scansion and clear comprehension. In his day he caused a sensation on both sides of the Atlantic and I hope he will do so for you now. Two Tuesdays: January 12 & 19, from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Online Class.
