Dear Colleagues,

Please join the Modernism Seminar of the Mahindra Humanities Center at
Harvard on Wednesday, March 26, at 6:00 p.m. to hear Helen Vendler speak on
the topic:

*"Heaney and the Classics"*


 The presentation will take place in Room 133 of the Barker Center.


*Helen Vendler* is the A. Kingsley Porter University Professor at Harvard,
where she received her Ph.D. in English and American literature, after
completing an undergraduate degree in chemistry at Emmanuel College. She
has written books on Yeats, Herbert, Keats, Stevens, Shakespeare, Seamus
Heaney, and Emily Dickinson. Her most recent books are *Dickinson*:*
Selected Poems and Commentaries*;* Last Looks, Last Books*:* Stevens,
Plath, Lowell, Bishop, Merrill*; and *Our Secret Discipline*:* Yeats and
Lyric Form*. She is a frequent reviewer of poetry in such journals as *The
New York Review of Books,* *The New York Times Book Review, *and *The New
Republic.*


There is free parking near the HHC at the Broadway Garage, on Felton
between Broadway and Cambridge Street. Just tell the attendant that you're
participating in an event at the HHC. Normally the attendant is welcoming,
as long as it's after 5:00 p.m., even if we are erroneously not on the good
list.

We hope you'll be able to attend the session, which, as always, includes
discussion after the presentation.
