Poet, Fulbright Scholar speaks to English II



By Austin Block

An internationally-published poet and former Fulbright Scholar spoke to sophomore English classes in Feldman-Horn Gallery on Friday, March 12.

Carol Davis, English teacher Charles Berezin’s wife, discussed the basic components of poetry and analyzed poems by other authors. She read and spoke about some of her own poems, including “My Son Accused,” a poem based on a teacher’s false claim that her son attempted to steal his own wristwatch, which he had left in his father’s classroom. People read poems “through the prism of our own experience,” she said.
