The Poetry of the North-East

Saturday 23 October 2021, 10.00AM to 1.15pm

Speaker(s): Stephen Grace PhD

North-East England has a rich poetic tradition, from Caedmon’s Hymn in the seventh century to the often-anonymous ballads of the Anglo-Scottish borders and the work of modern and contemporary poets such as Basil Bunting, Tom Pickard, and Gillian Allnutt. This course will explore some of this fertile literary ground by closely reading individual poems and poets, setting them within the region’s long history and asking how poetry has helped to shape different visions of the North-East and its people.
