Poetry Matters: Poems to Delight, Challenge and Inspire (new)
PXMR Fridays 1000-1200 (4 sessions: 4th May, 18th May, 8th Jun, 29th Jun)
Convener: Lynne Masters
This is a new taster to explore a variety of poems by different poets with an optimum number of 16 to facilitate the sharing of ideas and impressions. No prior knowledge is needed only an open mind and responsiveness to the skills employed in the crafting of poetic texts. Lynne intends to offer further exploration and appreciation of poetry in the Autumn Term and is considering a course called “Reading the Romantics: from Wordsworth to Keats” but will be open to suggestions regarding the content from members of the taster course.
Lynne Masters had a long career as a lecturer in English Literature and has recently worked as a tutor for the WEA and for the Friends Centre in Brighton
