Talking to Grief: Literary Explorations Of Loss

Wednesdays, February 13-March 20, 2019 (six sessions)

Guide: Lois Leveen, Tuition: $220

Loss is an inevitable part of life, yet the course of grief often surprises and overwhelms us.  How can works of literature help us understand grief, whether our own or someone else’s? In this seminar, we’ll delve into poetry, prose memoir, and graphic narrative, as we explore what authors gain from writing about grief, and what we gain from reading about it.

Reading List: “Talking to Grief” (poem) by Denise Levertov; Book of Hours by Kevin Young; Rosalie Lightning by Tom Hart; Nocturne by Helen Humphreys; plus supplementals
