“The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing — to reach the Mountain, to find the place where all the beauty came from — my country, the place where I ought to have been born. Do you think it all meant nothing, all the longing? The longing for home? For indeed it now feels not like going, but like going back.”
We will discuss C. S. Lewis’ Till We Have Faces at our next meeting, January 31. Enjoy reading, see you then!
“Tell me, O muse, of that ingenious hero who travelled far and wide…”
Are you ready to follow Odysseus on his journey home? If so, grab your copy of Homer’s Odyssey and be ready to discuss our hero’s adventures in the course of our third meeting on December 20! See you there, usual time and usual place!
Our first meeting on October 15 went very well, thank you to all those who attended and shared their thoughts on Plato’s Five Dialogues. We probably could have discussed it the entire day and I think we all left with the desire for more! Well, we can always go back to it during our next meeting, so hold on to your thoughts.
Our second meeting will be Saturday, November 15, at 9:30 am at the same location, Panera Bread (at Carter Hill and Zelda Rd.). We will discuss Sophocles‘ plays Oedipus the King and Antigone. As always, if you do not own a copy and do not want to buy it, you can assess these texts online here at Project Gutenberg.
See you then!
Dipso (from the Greek “I thirst”) was formed by a group friends moved by the desire, the thirst, to read and discuss the great books that are the foundation of our classical Christian tradition such as works by Plato, Sophocles, Aristotle, Augustine, Aquinas, Dante, etc.
The group will meet every third Saturday of the month, starting on October 18, at 9:30am at Panera Bread, 2998 Carter Hill Road (intersection of Carter Hill and Zelda). The meetings are open to everyone who is interested; the only requirement is to have read the assigned work ahead of time and be ready to discuss it.
We will begin with Plato’s Five Dialogues (Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, Meno, Phaedo). If you do not own the book, you can find each dialogue for free on Project Gutenberg by clicking here.
