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, 10.30-12.30.
Where it is: We are currently meeting via Zoom
A lively group, we choose our programme jointly - often modern poetry (technically that's 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 previously looked at WW1 poems and the poetry of Robert Frost, John Clare and W H Auden. We are currently looking at the poems of Emily Dickinson.
Normally membership of the group is limited to eight. Please contact the convenor to find out about current vacancies.
