A lively combination of expertise and entertainment is coming to London this November. Our outstanding line-up will include Dr Simon Avery, whose research interests include the poetry of Christina Rossetti. In 2014 he published an article on gender and power in Rossetti’s poetry for the British Library; he also teaches courses of fiction and poetry from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries at the University of Westminster. He will be joined by Dr Anna Beer, Nick Hutchison and Professor James Knowles. Students will enjoy relevant and lively sessions on Shakespeare’s plays, on comparing texts across time and genre and on contexts in Jacobean theatre and pre-1900 poetry.
