Dear Friends--

the minutes for last Friday's session with the astute Steve Evans is  
forthcoming.  In the meantime, I  wanted to send a reminder that we  
will be holding our last session of the semester on this Friday from  
3-5 in our usual room, 116 of the Whitney Humanities Center.  For  
this session we will be joined by WGCP member-at-large Adelaide M.  
Russo. Adelaide is professor of French and Comparative Literature at  
Lousiana State University--she will be leading a discussion on the  
work of Michel DeGuy, one of the formeost poets in France, whose  
poetics is deeply inflected by continental philosophy.  Two years ago  
we discussed DeGuy's work in connection to his visit to read at the  
Beinecke Library. Auseful intrdocution to degUy is availble here:

Copies of Adelaide's essay on Deguy were circulated at last Friday's  
session.  If you did not receive one but hope to attend on Friday,  
please contact Jean-Jacques Poucel (jean-jacques.poucel at yale.edu) so  
arrangements can be made.

Lastly, I wanted to circulate word of a reading happening today that  
will feature many members of the WGCP.

That's all for now,
Richard Deming, Group Co-coordinator
