Bard LLI Intersession - Talk/Signing Jan. 16, 2018
A TALK ON JOHN BURROUGHS' NATURE GOSPEL
The poet John Keats feared science would un-weave the rainbow. Nature essayist John Burroughs, on the other hand, embraced science for the light it would shed on nature and never feared he'd lose his sense of wonder and reverence as a consequence -- let the winter wren gush in a hemlock wood and he would stop to marvel. What did Burroughs mean by "religious," how did it fit into the 19th-century historical context, and how is his sense of the religious relevant at a time when the earth, as many environmentalists believe, is in mortal danger? Join Anne for answers on January 16. BARD LLI members only -- may bring a guest. FREE.
Stay tuned for other events in 2019.
