Robert Bly (1926-), was born in Minnesota to a family of Norwegian ancestry. As a poet, editor, and translator, Bly has had a profound impact on the shape of American poetry. Bly is a genius of the elevated ‘high’ style, in the European tradition of Rilke and Yeats, the lush magical realism of the Spanish poets like Lorca and Neruda. Yet Bly’s work is truly American, taking its atmosphere of wide empty space from the Midwest, and its unabashed straightforward emotionalism and spiritualism. This discussion will focus on his major poems and translation work.

A native of North Carolina, Dr. Cofield worked as a high school teacher until 1964 when she was fired as a result of her involvement in the struggle for civil rights. In a benchmark case, she sued both the city and the Board of Education in federal court, and her teaching job was restored, prompting school boards throughout the South to abort efforts to fire Black teachers. After earning two graduate degrees at Rutgers University, she moved to New Jersey in 1980 and worked in the New Jersey Department of Education’s Office of Equal Educational Opportunity. In 1983, she co-founded the Black Women’s History Conference – an organization that sponsored annual conferences for almost 20 years. Registration is suggested.

The principal characters in this novel are the servants in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Sarah, the orphaned housemaid, spends her days scrubbing the laundry, polishing the floors, and emptying the chamber pots for the Bennet household. But there is just as much romance, heartbreak, and intrigue downstairs at Longbourn as there is upstairs. The arrival of a mysterious new footman threatens to completely, perhaps irrevocably, upend the orderly realm of the servants' hall.
