  2. Robert Frost: a life in poetry
    Evening, ONLINE
    Course start date:  Thu 9 Jun 2022

    Location on this date:  Online

    Tutors:  Woody River
    With a career spanning nearly fifty years, Robert Frost is one of America’s best-loved poets. His poetry is often written in simple meters with regular rhyme schemes, and most of us will probably be familiar with at least one of his poems, either ‘The Road not Taken’ or ‘Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening’. Both poems are set in the woodlands of New England, but is there more to Robert Frost than being a traditional poet who loved nature?

    Tutors:  Peter Cherry
    In 2018, Nick Drnaso’s graphic novel Sabrina was long listed for the Man Booker Prize leading to renewed discussion about the graphic novel and its relationship to the novel form. In this course, we will discuss how graphic novels, or ‘narratives of sequential art’, have developed into a literary and cultural form over the latter half of the twentieth century and into the current day.
