Of wild plums and poetic wonder (video-interview)

We were so fortunate to have Dr. Frederick Turner (The University of Texas at Dallas) with us for the National Classical Education Symposium in March. Dr. Turner’s scholarship surrounding epics, his love for the liberal arts, and his masterful poetic voice all combine in a person of extraordinary wit and wisdom.

Today we are replaying an interview hosted at the Symposium in March, where we got to explore Dr. Turner’s background and development as a thinker and writer, from his childhood in Africa (among “stunning wild plum trees”) to his work as a masterful poet of science-fiction epics.

Enjoy this “Leisurely Conversation,” and let us know if you have an opportunity to explore Dr. Turner’s work.
