Bristol

Poetry Reading Group,Fishponds

What it is: A group for people who like to share and discuss poetry, and how it affects us.

When it is: Monthly, 2nd Friday, 10.30am - 12.30pm.

Where it is: We are currently meeting via Zoom but hope to start meeting in person again soon.

A lively group, we choose our programme jointly - often modern poetry (post-1900) but we like the idea of retreating further into the past sometimes. We bring our own choices to the group according to the programme, read the poems round the room and talk about how they have affected us and how successful (or otherwise) we think they are, sometimes moving on to subjects raised by the content. We have recently looked at WWI poems and the poetry of Robert Frost, John Clare, Sylvia Plath and W H Auden. We are currently looking at the poems of Emily Dickinson.
