W- Exploring Victorian Poetry

We will look together at selected poems of some of the great 19C figures from John Clare to Thomas Hardy, taking in Tennyson, Arnold, Browning, Emily Bronte, Christina Rosetti, Hopkins Wylde, and the nonsense poets Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll, with many others along the way. Participants will be encouraged but not forced to introduce individual poets. No previous knowledge or experience necessary though it would be nice if members could read through the selected poems before each class.

Starting 22 September by Zoom, then possibly in FMH. Introduction to the period given by Karen Hodder who taught it in the University of York.
