The Persistence of Beauty Public Lecture Series - Something, is it? On Frost, Bishop and Others

28th February 2012, 18:15 to 19:15, Room 140, Elvet Riverside Building, New Elvet, Professor Angela Leighton (University of Cambridge)

This is part of The Persistence of Beauty Public Lecture Series.

 

This lecture contends that the poetry of Frost sought to deliberately avoid poetic encounters with the beautiful, even as it could not imaginatively do without beauty. She explored similar conundrums in the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop which rediscovered beauty in ordinary things even as it actively sought to resist and evade the category of beauty altogether.

All welcome to attend.
