I always save the Times Travel section to read at leisure, and to savor as I relive travels and plan trips. Jerry Hulse's Travel Tips are an invaluable source of information for the intrepid traveler. I was glad to see the recommendations for the English Literature Summer School in Tips, April 7. The course offered in "The Writer and the Environment," and I can recommend it as one of the most enjoyable summer experiences i've had. I took the course for two weeks last July while I lived with a wonderful English family, wxperiencing English family life in depth.
Intellectually stimulating seminars are conducted by erudite and witty Sheffield University professors, and there are provocative discussions with participants from all over the world. The literary excursions are especially delightful, to the countryside and villages of the Brontes, Jane Austen, D.H. Lawrence, the Lake Country, Lord Byrons's castle, historic York, Stratford and much more.
