Leicester

Poetry Appreciation

Convenor: Helen Parsons

Each member of the group in turn chooses the poem or poems for the following month. These are distributed in advance of the meeting and introduced by the person who has chosen them. There are no rules about what poet or poems can be studied; the only stipulation is that there should not be too much material to be looked at in the space of about an hour – so no epics!

We have ranged very widely, according to the tastes and preferences of the members, and have considered poets such as Matthew Arnold, George Crabbe, Carol Ann Duffy, Philip Larkin, Seamus Heaney, and also lesser known writers. We have also looked at poems on themes such as garden poems, summer poems, London poems and so on – the possibilities are endless.

When: 10.30am, 1st Monday of the month, in members’ homes.
