The Evolution of Land, Work, Life, and Faith as Seen Through the Artistic Lens of Writers

January 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Three years after marrying, poets Donald Hall and Jane Kenyon moved to Eagle Pond Farm in Wilmot, New Hampshire, a farm that had been in Hall’s family since 1865.

Although neither had been regular church goers until their move, they began to attend regularly, and, according to Hall, this helped them become a part of “something that endures—a community radiating the willingness or even the desire to be careful and loving.” For our classes on January 14th & 21st, we will focus on them both, looking at how they dealt with life’s struggles (Work, illness, tragedy) through their work and faith.

 

Class Overview: During this class series will read and discuss work from writers Donald Hall, Jane Kenyon, William Faulkner, and Wendell Berry, focusing on how they related to the world of work and how it relates to faith and the environment. Over the course of four sessions, we will read poetry and prose from writers who interpreted and synthesized the rapidly changing world and the land around them through their work. As the human relationship to land and work shifted over the years, how did they navigate this and what role did faith play? Donald Hall, Jane Kenyon, and William Faulker were not overt in their religious beliefs, but faith and morality play a large role in their work. Wendell Berry, still living and going on six decades of writing, is more outspoken on faith and intensely connected to the environment.
