Literature: Philip Larkin with Dr Mark Crees View details

This taster course will introduce the poetry of Philip Larkin, and an enticement to join the poetry course that follows this September: 'Two Poets: Tennyson and Philip Larkin'. Philip Larkin is one of the most read, most admired and most recited poets of the modern era. His poetic reputation, however, rests on three very slim books: 'The Less Deceived', 'The Whitsun Weddings' & ‘High Windows'. Yet the thinness of these volumes is itself, highly deceptive. These books represent a lifetime's commitment to the subtle power of art, and they testify to Larkin's remarkable achievement as a writer and poetic ponderer. On this course, we will take a train to Larkinland, and explore how his poetry can help us to reflect upon the fragility, and the wonder, of our everyday lives

Literature: Discussing 'High Wages' (1930) Bestselling Novel by Dorothy Whipple View details

We will be discussing our reactions to Dorothy Whipple's second novel. It's set in 1912, but was published in 1930. We'll be thinking about the style of the writing, as well as characterisations, setting and themes. The publishers, Virago, refused to consider any of Dorothy Whipple's novels for their re-prints, but she is currently one of the most popular re-discovered writers being enjoyed by Persephone Press. Why is that? This session is self-contained, and will focus on the novel in question. However, if you're interested in sharing your thoughts about three more novels published in 1930, there will be a follow-on six session course starting on 1st November, course code: C3532680
