Led by Joyce Goldenstern

Often considered the quintessential modern poem, T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land challenges us to consider reading in a new way—without the aid of the traditional unities of time, place, and narrator. Eliot’s musicality, imagery, and allusions guide us through the poem, and other pieces by the poet, as we become adept at reading the modern idiom. Please read “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” for the first session.

Joyce Goldenstern holds M.A.s in English and linguistics and is an adjunct instructor in the English department at Dominican University. She is also a freelance writer and indexer.
