David Bromwich, Sterling Professor of English at Yale, has taught courses on British romanticism, modern poetry, and the political thought of Burke and Lincoln.  Among his books are Hazlitt: the Mind of a Critic and The Intellectual Life of Edmund Burke: From the Sublime and Beautiful to American Independence.  He edited the Penguin edition of Henry James's Turn of the Screw and co-edited the Yale University Press edition of Mill's On Liberty.  He is working now on a book about rhetorical persuasion and the relationship between words and actions.

His essays and reviews have appeared in The New York Review of Books, The Nation, and the London Review of Books; and between 2007 and 2016 he wrote semi-regular columns for the Huffington Post on civil liberties and America's wars.

Professor Bromwich will discuss the political and economic environment that may prevail after the new U.S. President is sworn in.

This event is the first in a new Yale Speakers Series.  It is open to all at no charge, thanks to the contributions of YAAG members and the Greenwich Library.  Registration is now closed, but walk-ins are welcome.  Please e-mail any questions to yaagct@gmail.com.
