Humanities West Book Discussion - The Song of Roland (MLF)
- Community & Culture
- The Commonwealth Club, San Francisco CA
Donald E. Pease, Jr., Author, Theodor Seuss Geisel; Professor of English and Comparative Literature, Ted and Helen Geisel Third Century Professor in the Humanities and Chair of the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies Program, Dartmouth College
Dr. Seuss's infectious rhymes, fanciful creatures, and roundabout plots not only changed the way children read but how they imagined the world. And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, Green Eggs and Ham and The Cat and the Hat have entertained millions of children and adults for decades. Pease will discuss the unlikely story of how, after graduating from Dartmouth, Dr. Seuss used his talents as an ad-man, political provocateur, and social satirist, before gradually turning to children's books. Pease also offers a glimpse of Dr. Seuss's early artistic style and the visual origins of the more famous creatures that later populated his children's books, shedding new light on the enduring legacy of America's favorite children's book author.
