Core of the Core

This discussion group is intended for alumni who miss the analysis and stimulation of classes like “Poetry and the Human”.

This discussion gshield_logoroup is intended for alumni who miss the analysis and stimulation of classes like Poetry and the Human and the timeless works encountered there. It is a cross between a class and a book club, where members of the group read great compositions and related works and gather together to exchange insights and thoughts.

The group began meeting in March 2018, and read works from the Human Being and Citizen classes in the first two series, starting with The Iliad and ending with Kafka’s “Before the Law."


The readings for the 12/17 gathering are:

  • N. Scott Momaday, The Way to Rainy Mountain
  • Popul Vuh, Part 1 and introduction
  • Recommended: E. Boland and M. Strand, Making of a Poem 5-42
