Afternoon talk – Bird Poems of the Romantic Poets
Wed 15th May 2019
Long Sutton Village Hall,
£10 to include tea / coffee and cake
The bird is traditionally an image of the poetic voice and, as such, held much appeal for poets of the Romantic period – and beyond. We shall read about the nightingale and the skylark, of course, but also the snipe and the owl, always looking to discover the poets' perspective on each bird – from the ethereal to the terrestrial, from the fanciful to the carefully observed.
