Saturday 25 May 2024, 10.00AM to 4.30pm

Speaker(s): Martin Fletcher PhD FHEA

Close up of words on pages of a book

Eliot, the master Modernist, was a complex character with a rare sense of humour and a prodigious talent, a poet who could conjure up ‘Macavity the Mystery Cat’ as well as ‘The Waste Land’. In this course we will examine the life and work of one of the 20th century’s pioneering literary icons, revealing how a fusion of American sensibility, classical scholarship and English culture produced poetry and literary criticism of such sophistication and lasting influence.
