THE RIGHT TO PRIVACY

 

Barbara Greenberg, Instructor of Lifelong Learning

Tuesdays, January 25-March 15 10-11:30 a.m. ET

 

Our Right to Privacy seems to be changing daily. There is a continuing conflict between individual rights and those of the community for public safety, security and health and welfare. As well, issues of personal choice are in conflict with the first amendment issues of free speech and religion. Our classes will look at the areas of most recent concern - technology, public health, and personal and family issues. Our discussions will include a review of decisions from the United States Supreme Court involving these areas and the Bill of Rights which gives us the basis for our right to privacy.

SIX GREAT WORKS OF MODERN BRITISH POETRY

 

Shelley Bloomfield, Instructor of Lifelong Learning

Wednesdays, January 26-March 2 10:30 a.m-noon ET

 

What makes a poem "modern?" Aside from considering their historical context, we'll read and discuss six major works, tackling these questions: how does the poem invigorate old forms - or discard them altogether for new ones? Does the poem discover new and more relevant meanings, or assail the failed comforts of a disappearing age? How does the poem break through formal poetic traditions and find new ground to explore? How does the very imagery feel fresh, alarming, entangling, beautiful, original - and "modern?" Roughly 100 years from their creation, what do these masterpieces tell us about alienation, the lessons of the past, and a future that depends on human connection? Read: The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, Eliot: Among School Children, Yeats; Fern Hill, Thomas, Dulce et Decorum, Owen; The Incarnate, Gore-Booth; Musee des Beaux Arts, Auden
