Yesteryear’s great works bring us today’s rich literature. How does it happen? One day at a time as a writer develops his or her writing voice, learning from or reacting against those who went before them. For the fourth year in a row, Baruch Colleges Great Works Program asks its participants to select a classic work from among those being studied in the program and to discuss its resonance within his or her life and work.
