The annual St. Chad’s College Poetry Lecture, delivered by Anne Stevenson, will examine the poetry of Robert Frost and Elizabeth Bishop. The event – to which all are welcome – takes place on 18th March, 18.00 – 19.00, in St. Chad’s College chapel.
Anne Stevenson is an Anglo-American poet who has lived most of her adult life in Great Britain. She is the author of over a dozen volumes of poetry, of some books of essays and literary criticism, of a biography of the American poet Sylvia Plath, Bitter Fame: A Life of Sylvia Plath(1989), and of two critical studies of Elizabeth Bishop.
This lecture is organised by the Centre for Poetry and Poetics and St. Chad’s College. A transcript of her 2013 lecture, “How to Read Poetry,” also organised by the CPP and St. Chad’s, is available here.
