‘Exploring English Poetry’


Professor Anthony L. Johnson

Beginning November 24, 2018

Inspired by our super-popular sold-out event with Professor Johnson this past October, featuring readings of his own beautiful poetry as well as some of his favorite classics, we are delighted to announce a new weekly course featuring Professor Johnson’s scholarship and insights into the broader world of English Poetry.

Following an illustrious career at the Universities of Florence and Pisa, Oxford-educated Professor Johnson has continued to lecture and publish internationally-hailed translations and criticism on such illustrious poets as Byron, Shelley, Eliot, Yeats, etc.

New York English Academy is honored to be able to offer this course to all lovers of English poetry – native and non-native speakers alike – during which Professor Johnson will lead us on a fascinating exploration of English poetry, from the world-famous classics to some lesser known gems.

This course will feature a combination of readings, lectures and discussions, and those who have had the good fortune of having attended the Professor’s university lectures and/or our previous events with him know of his rare gift of being able to communicate to both scholars and laypeople in equal measure.

We take this opportunity to thank Professor Johnson for  this wonderful opportunity and honor, and we look forward to welcoming you all there!

  • The first phase of this course will last 5-Weeks – from 24.11.2018 until 22.12.2018.

  • This course has a maximum number of 12 participants so that we can properly focus on each student’s needs and allow everyone the opportunity to participate in the discussions.
