To Hell and Back in Fourteen Words – warsztaty akademickie w IV LO im.KEN

6 listopada w IV Liceum Ogólnokształcącym im. KEN odbyły się kolejne już warsztaty akademickie organizowane we współpracy z Akademią Techniczno-Humanistyczną. Tym razem mgr Sławomir Konkol z Katedry Anglistyki omówił z młodzieżą wiersz Ezry Pounda.

Sami uczestnicy tak opisali to spotkanie:

On the 6th of November an interesting event took place: we had a special guest in our school. A teacher from the University of Bielsko-Biała came to class 1E and had a conversation about poetry. Everybody was deeply involved in the conversation and although the topic of the poem was not the easiest one, together the whole class discovered what the author might have thought while writing it. We learned the history of Ezra Pound, an American poet who used to describe Europe in his works and was outstandingly interested in it. Despite the difficulties, the class learned how to analyze some parts of poems by studying the grammar and references to other works, Greek myths for example. In fact it was a very useful experience, because it also showed us how univeristy classes will look in the future. After the class, students asked the teacher about the work of a translator and what exactly English philology studies look like
