Event Details

ONE OF THE MOST PUBLIC MARRIAGES IN LITERARY HISTORY, THE STORY AND THE POETRY OF SYLVIA PLATH AND TED HUGHES STILL RESONATES WITH US TODAY.

This 6-week course will aim to open up that relationship a little by looking at themes that emerge from their work – nature, birth, death, betrayal, love and children.

Each week we will study 2 poems – one from each poet, building a clearer understanding of this complex and insightful couple and what they made of the world they lived in. At times cruel, joyful and always with such a succinct and intelligent way with words, this course would suit anyone of any age to develop their reading of poetry and an interest in these two, sadly missing, wonderful 20th century poets.

No prior knowledge needed, just a keen and open mind – some of the subjects are a little dark.

You will be provided with all the poetry but a local bookshop will be on hand with fresh copies of their anthologies and some of their biographies in case you wanted to go further, however,  there is no extensive reading list.
