Silence and Sublimity in Tennyson
An Inventions of the Text seminar, exploring Tennyson's early notebooks.
Dr Michael J. Sullivan, Junior Research Fellow at Christ Church, Oxford, and an alumnus of Durham University, will be speaking on ‘Silence and Sublimity in Tennyson’s Early Notebooks’.
The theme for this year’s seminar series, ‘Borders’, will be addressed in its many guises: from the borders between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, between empirical and sceptical philosophy, and between draft and finished verse, to the insights that may be derived from authorial marginalia.
The seminar will be followed by drinks in The Victoria Inn and the option of dinner at Ristorante Capriccio. If you would like to join us for dinner, please contact us at email@example.com.
