Day School: John Betjeman

Ref: C2419099

Sir John Betjeman was famous in his lifetime for his many television programmes and appearances, his campaigns to preserve and conserve historic buidings, and of course for his best-selling poetry. He also assiduously cultivated the image of himself as 'Teddy Bear to the Nation'. While this description contained some elements of truth, there was much more to the life and writings of John Betjeman than just that, As well as writing endearing and humourous poems, Betjeman was a serious, original, and important poet and prose writer , with a surprisingly broad range of sympathies and interests. Today we will explore some of his poetry and prose in the context of his interesting life and times, in an attempt to understand this fascinating man and writer.
