Arts & Culture
Poetry, for August Kleinzahler, belongs to “the realm of fire,” and this fall the critically-acclaimed poet and essayist brings his elemental vision of modern poetics to Claremont McKenna College with two courses on the cultural and historical forces that have shaped the arts, poetry and prose in particular, over the last 150 years. The courses are open to all students of The Claremont Colleges.
The end of summer may be in sight, but there’s still plenty of time for vacation reading, starting with the following selection of new and recent releases by members of CMC’s alumni community:
Some people can’t quite figure Brentt Baltimore ’10. Others, when they find out the work he does and what he’s sacrificed to do it, know all they need to know about what kind of a guy he is.
You see, Baltimore, 24, is making news for having turned down a six-figure job at a Los Angeles hedge fund in favor of a $33,000-a-year position at a venture capital firm in Detroit––despite having $38,000 in student loan debt.
Benjamin Tillotson ’15 and Andrew Willis ’14, new Ath Fellows for the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum, hope to book a diverse and interesting group of speakers when they begin their stint for 2013-2014.
