Literary Gladiators: Episode 7- "The Peacock" by W.B. Yeats

During the summer, we put together twenty-two episodes of Literary Gladiators spread among four separate sessions. This episode that you are about to see was the very first that we filmed. Jim, Charlie, and I are back just as we intended to be, while Courtney (a co-worker of mine that has expressed a joy for reading, writing, and literature) joins us on the panel for the very first time. Laney is our new moderator, while my friend Ari continues to serve as the editor.

The inspiration behind this particular episode is a story that we go over while Charlie and I were in British Literature II. Charlie brought up something similar to which I replied my answer to his predicament quite bluntly. We were having a group discussion, so the other person or two and I continued going over specific details before Charlie exclaimed his reply to this particular realization. We had to share this story, along with our discoveries and approaches in how we read this particular poem.

I will continue to share episodes on my blog as they are released. The next episodes should be up in about two weeks and cover Charlie's birthday week/ Will Charlie get his cupcakes?
