Classes in the Study of Literature

The Classroom

"In the parlor of a restored sea captain’s house across from Town Cove, Clark, a retired professor and lexicographer, convenes sessions...with light streaming through tall windows illuminating buttery walls, students curl up in armchairs and couches and immerse themselves in Greek history, poetry and Middle English.

The classroom for the Inquiring Mind is a charming, inviting parlour.

Clark, an unassuming Englishman given to bow ties and dry wit, leads the classes subtly, tossing out nuggets of knowledge almost offhandedly, often prefaced with phrases like “Of course you know...” allowing students to save face as they absorb knowledge." Debbi B. Stetson, The Cape Codder, February, 2005
