Re: Odyssey Program Presents What Makes Irish Literature Irish

"What Makes Irish Literature Irish," will explore Irish writing through the centuries to uncover the distinct hallmarks that have swayed public opinion and impacted the country's social and political scene. This six-session course is being offered by Johns Hopkins University's non-credit Odyssey Program. It will trace the evolution of Irish writing from the early epic legends to the brilliance of 17th century writers, such as Jonathan Swift, and through the 20th century, including William Butler Yeats, Oscar Wilde and James Joyce.

The course will be taught by Carmel McCaffrey, founder and editor of the journal "Wild About Wilde," and author of In Search of Ancient Ireland. She is chief historical consultant and script adviser for a PBS television series with the same title.

The course runs Monday evenings from March 24 through April 28 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus, 3400 North Charles Street. The cost is $162 for six classes. For more information or to register, please call 410-516-4842 or visit: www.odyssey.jhu.edu.
