Understanding Classic Poetry
Do come and join us - there are spaces available in this group.
Critical reading and discussion of poets such as Shakespeare, Milton, Donne, Byron, Yeats, and Auden. A general aim is to read poetry with awareness of its historical and cultural implications. The group has now completed a close reading of Shakespeare’s enigmatic sonnets and is continuing with the later history of the sonnet form. The next subject will be the visionary and the fantastic in poetry after 1800.
