Beyond Similes & Metaphors: Fun with Figures of Speech
This class is co-sponsored by Southeast Seniors & Minneapolis Community Education and will be held via Zoom. It is offered on a sliding fee scale, with a suggested contribution of $0-$5.
The ancient Greeks and Romans invented hundreds of figures of speech to ornament their writing. Most of these had faded out of use by the end of the 19th century. This class will teach you a dozen figures to enhance your reading with lively examples of literature from the Bible, the stories of Sherlock Holmes, and more.
Karen Murdock is a former Geography teacher. She is passionately interested in Sherlock Holmes, gardening, and the spatial distribution of everything.
