Speaking of poetry, I would wager that Peter Murphy’s lecture this afternoon on “Everything about Poetry (And Everything Else)” will be a winner. It’s too bad that the 4:15 time means that winter athletes can’t attend.
Murphy is one of my favorite Williams folks because of the outstanding job he did (or seemed to do from a distance) as Dean of the College during the mid 1990’s. (Of course, I also thought that Hank Payne was doing a great job during this period, so caveat reador.) His best quote was something along the lines of “Shaping hearts and minds is actually an important part of what we do around here,” in regard to an administration policy. If anyone knows the precise reference, I would be appreciate knowing it.
I will also see about linking to Murphy’s lecture.
