Terigatha Book – Discussion Group
hosted and led by Katharine Quince
Gatherings will meet downstairs every other Tuesday at 7:30 pm. We will be reading and discussing these books:
Nov 6: Murcott — Preface, Introduction, and Chapters 1-3 and corresponding poems from Hallisey
Nov 20: Murcott — Chapters 4-6 and corresponding poems from Hallisey
Dec 4: Murcott — Chapters 7-9 and corresponding poems from Hallisey
Dec 18: Murcott — Chapters 10-12 and corresponding poems from Hallisey
The Murcott’s book will be our guiding focus because it has excellent background and commentary on the Theris and their poems. However, Hallisey’s translation is very beautiful and widely accepted as the most accurate, so I find it enriching to read his translation along with Murcott’s. There are used copies of Murcott’s book on Amazon and a paperback version of Hallisey’s available as well, which helps with affordability. You could also opt to purchase just Murcott’s book and we can read portions of Hallisey together when we meet.
