University of New Haven faculty member Chuck Timlin has brought his excellent teaching skills to the Essex Library community on topics such as Chaucer and Beowulf. Now back by popular demand, he turns his talents to an examination of the poets William Wordsworth and Robert Frost. This seminar will be conducted on 5 Thursday evenings in 90-minute sessions that are free and open to the public.

Born virtually 100 years apart, William Wordsworth and Robert Frost became the most beloved poets in their countries. Both are known for writing particularly powerfully about Nature, and each did so in response to the growing influence of industry and technology. Each celebrated the values and lessons that rural life can remind us to hold dear in our hectic modern lives. There is a universality of experiences that each portrays in their poems so often set in the countryside.

These classes are free and open to the public. Please call the Library (860) 767-1560 to register or for more information.
