Negative Capability: Finding Peace in a Busy World

Join us on November 19 at 7:30 in the Round Room at Massey College, at the northwest corner of the Quad.

John Keats called it  “ capable of being in uncertainties, Mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason.”   A meditative moment, a work of art, nature: how do we free ourselves, however briefly, from the day’s demands, so that we may regenerate and restore our full capacity for humanity and compassion?  Two poets, Ronna Bloom and John Donlan explore their experience of literature and healing with moderator Dr. Allan Peterkin.
