CTI Book Club: John Keats

Selected Poems

Thu, April 19, 2018 | WAG 403B

5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

For the last book club of the semester, Dr. Dempsey will be leading a discussion on Keats’ “Ode on a Grecian Urn,” “Ode on Melancholy,” and “Bright star, would I were steadfast as thou art—“. Note that the topic has changed: we’ll do Keats instead of Wallace Stevens. It’s one last chance to contemplate the finitude of human existence before we send you home for the summer. The reading is available below, but we’ll read the whole thing out loud during our discussion.
