WH Auden's "Shield of Achilles"

   I have been teaching Introduction to Mythology at Blythewood High School for six years, and have taught this poem every semester at the conclusion of our Trojan War unit. Auden has long been a favorite of mine, and his reading for hos own poem is outstanding. Notice the juxtaposition of the two strands in the poem! It is rich in allusion and import.

Carol Worthington-Levy Featured in the New Palette!




file:///C:/Users/Pamela/Downloads/Palette_Issue%2068.pdf

Then go to page 13. Carol and I go back all the way to the 8th grade. Back then I knew she would do spectacular things in the arts. Her musical and vocal abilities are superb, and as a painter, well, look for yourself!

She has done the covers for my four books of poetry, and they are certainly eye-catching. In this magazine some of her more recent work is showcased, with excellent commentary by her and from the magazine itself.

http://worthington-levy.com/ will take you to her professional site. She is also on Facebook.
On Twitter, https://twitter.com/WorthingtonLevy. When you contact her, tell her that I sent you.
Thanks!
