When was the last time you read a great work at a slow pace to really ingest its beauty?
This is a rigorous course designed to cultivate the art of taking in the sense and beauty of language. Thomas Newkirk on “slow” reading: “So I would like to propose some strategies for slowing down and reclaiming the acoustical properties of written language—for savoring it, for enjoying the infinite ways a sentence can unfold—and for returning to passages that sustain and inspire us. Many of these strategies are literally as old as the hills” (March 2010).
Please bring a copy of James Joyrce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and read Chapter 1 for the first class.
