Sunday, July 8 MAURICE MANNING: This Land is Your Land
11:00 AM Tangled Up in Blue: Tramps, Troubadors, and the Language of Poetry
For this lecture I plan to look briefly at the 11th century troubadours, who composed poems to be accompanied
by music. These early poems were written for the ear, rather than the page. My thesis is such a tradition has
continued in poetry ever since and may be worth closer study. No advance reading is necessary. Handouts will
be provided. Singing will probably be a feature of this lecture.
