The Literary Language of Nature

Thursday, Jan 25, 2018

7:30pm – 9:00pm

Through reading some classic and contemporary nature prose and poetry, examine how writers from Genesis to modern times have captured the natural world, addressing their own time, even as they transcend it. More than a reading group, this course will open your eyes to the varied terrain of nature in literature.  New readings for 2018!

Instructor: Dr. Winifred Hughes Spar

This course is part of our ongoing Language of Nature Adult Education series in which  you can deepen your understanding of, and appreciation for, the natural world.  In collaboration with faculty from NJ colleges and universities, we present a series of courses on “The Language of Nature.” These stimulating six-week courses offer learning for fun and enrichment, and promise a deeper and more luminous connection to our plant and animal neighbors.

“To a person uninstructed in natural history, his country or seaside stroll is a walk through a gallery filled with wonderful works of art, nine-tenths of which have their faces turned to the wall.”   Thomas Huxley
