‘Literature is news that stays news.’ -Ezra Pound, American poet
Because literature grapples with the very mystery of existence, because it questions—and often reveals—some universal truths about the complexity and ambiguity of human nature, reading it can help us understand ourselves and the world around us better. It can help stimulate ideas, thoughts, and feelings. And, quite simply, it can be fun!
In this Lit Club we can build our vocabulary and knowledge of grammar by reading and discussing great works of literary art, yes, but we will also work to develop our recognition of the elements of literature—such as plot, conflict, theme, setting, etc.—as well as literary devices such as symbol, imagery, metaphor, and so forth. Please bring a pen, some paper, and your love of beautiful language.
In our first meeting for American Lit Club we will both plunge into the murky depths of urban life, and gallop through the placid fields of a wintry countryside by reading, responding to, and analyzing two classic American poems: ‘In a Station of the Metro’ (1913) by Ezra Pound; and ‘Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening’ (1923) by Robert Frost. We will examine how these writers create mood through imagery, metaphor, and diction.
Remember to bring your passport or driver's license.
