Modern Poetry, St Andrews/Bishopton
UNFORTUNATELY THE GROUP IS NOT CURRENTLY ACTIVE
What: A small, lively, democratic group, we read and informally discuss poetry written between the beginning of the 20thC and the present day, thinking about the meaning and effect of poems and how they convey their messages.
When is it: Thursday 2.00 for 2.15 - 4.15 pm, fortnightly. On summer break until late September 2017.
Where is it: Members' homes around St Andrews/Bishopston/Kingsdown areas.
Good bus links up the Gloucester Road to some venues and train to Montpelier Station (Severn Beach Line) or 70 bus for others.
We sometimes read poems members have brought to share and sometimes take an extended look at the work of a single poet. This latter group has included recently: Seamus Heaney, Geoffrey Hill, Gillian Clarke, Ted Hughes, Elizabeth Bishop, Philip Larkin, Jean Sprackland and Thomas Hardy.
