The discussion leader, OPL Assistant Director Tom Murray, will select representative poems from the collection of over 200 lyrical poems in the anthology, each one an individual portrait, often told in the first-person, of the dead “sleeping on the hill.”
Masters’ sad, funny and bitter portraits of individual lives in a small Midwestern town at the turn of the century was a commercial and critical success that influenced later chroniclers of the American small town like Sinclair Lewis and William Faulkner.
The program is free and open to all. Refreshments will be shared.
