Poetry with David Carroll ~ LINES
Sunday, February 19, 2017
We are so pleased to have David return to discuss poetry.
David M. Carroll will present a reading and discussion of poems and prose-poems written in
English and the four languages he pursues: Spanish; Italian; German; and Russian.
These brief works are experimental in nature; and foreign language pieces will be followed by
He will discuss his process, a blend of creative writing and language-learning.
He will talk about some of his favorite poets from various cultures and periods,
and the valuable role that dual language editions of poetry can play
in one's learning a foreign language.
Discussion, comments, and questions from the audience will be most welcome.
