This week Romantic Realignments presents a double bill! On our regular Thursday slot, 1st March, our very own Dr Fiona Stafford will speak on 'Wordsworth and the Ecchoing Wye'. Dr Stafford, recipient of the British Academy Prize, will be talking about her research into Wordsworth's 'Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey' and the literary significance of rivers; focusing on the difference between landscapes and places. We look forward to see you all there!
Our second speaker for this week is Dr Marshall Brown, Professor of Comparative Literature at the University of Washington. We are extremely fortunate to have Dr Brown join us from overseas and offer to speak on to the title: 'The Voice of the Sod: Keats's Nightingale from Below'.
This talk will take place in our usual location, Seminar Room A, at 3:30pm this Friday, 2nd March.
Wordsworth enthusiasts, Wye travellers, ornithologists, nature lovers and Keatsians alike - please feel free to come to one or both of these wonderful talks! Everyone welcome - we look forward to seeing you there!
