Photo of Dr. Christopher HodgkinsDr. Christoper Hodgkins (English) was at West Point earlier this week, speaking to cadets at the U.S. Military Academy. He co-taught classes on poetry, and spoke to a student group about C.S. Lewis’ “Learning in Wartime.” At noon on Tuesday, he was scheduled to give a talk to cadets titled “Dangerous Poetry: Our Lovers’ Quarrel with Literature and Art.” The talk explores the whys and wherefores of poetry’s problematic persistence, asking why so many have found poetry—and indeed all literature and art—so dangerous, and why nevertheless we can’t seem to live without it.
