The Pity Is in the Poetry: British Poetry from World War I

  • Albany Public Library Pine Hills Branch 517 Western Avenue Albany, NY, 12203 United States (map)

In this, the centennial of the end of World War I (the war to end all wars), we will study the brave and heartbreaking poems of British men and women who experienced, one way or another, that awful conflict. The course will culminate in a trip to the presentation by the Albany Symphony Orchestra and Albany Pro Musica of Benjamin Britten's "War Requiem," on Nov. 10, at Proctors (participants will be responsible for purchasing their own tickets).  Facilitated by St. Rose professor and South End writer Paul Lamar.  Registration is required.  Sign up at the reference desk, by calling 518-482-7911 x2, or by clicking the link https://albanypubliclibrary.libcal.com/event/4296544
