Thorndike Speaks at Poetry Conference in Rochester, New York

Jonathan Thorndike

Belmont English Professor Dr. Jonathon Thorndike was one of four invited speakers at the Rochester, New York Chesterton Society Fr. Leo Hetzler Conference on “Poetry, the Fruit of Christian Joy.” The goal of the Rochester Chesterton’s Society is to encourage good fellowship, lively discussion and harness a deeper appreciation of the works of GK Chesterton.

Thorndike’s presentation, “Chesterton, Chaucer, and The Canterbury Tales,” centered around Chesterton’s book on Chaucer and the concept of pilgrimage in the middle ages.
