The Ancient Quarrel Redux, and Gone West: Ryan J. Browne reads his poem “Night Drive with Crazy Horse,” with a philosophical response by CCAS student Natalie Gorup, and ensuing open discussion.
Ryan Browne, CCAS alumnus, who majored in both philosophy and English, is a poet presently living in Madison, Wisconsin. In addition to the B. A. from Creighton, he holds the M. F. A. from the University of Alabama. His debut collection of poems, Outside Come In won the 2011 Bright Hill Press Book Award. His poems have appeared in The Colorado review, The Spoon River Poetry review, and elsewhere. Ryan has taught poetry and literature and is an accomplished home-brewer (of beer). Natalie Gorup is a CCAS senior, also a poet, who like Ryan has an interest in what Plato called “the ancient quarrel” between poetry and philosophy.
This event, free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Creighton University Philosophy Department, and the local chapter of Phi Sigma Tau, the honors society for undergraduate philosophy majors
