Poetry Workshop with Gene McCarthy

January 20 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join resident Gene McCarthy as he shows how to read and speak poetry, using line, sound, rhythm, and much more. After exploring those elements in his book Sound Ideas: Hearing and Speaking Poetry, we now read selections from various major poets – Stanley Kunitz, Mary Oliver, Seamus Heaney, and the like – where we learn that by speaking a poem aloud our human voice and body convey the emotions of the poem and its experience. Gene is a retired Holy Cross professor.
