Poetry sales are rising. We will read a range of up-and-coming poets and discuss whether their work offers us something long-lasting, perhaps permanent, or whether they will fade away as fashions change.
This course, led by Nick Field, City Lit literature tutor and former Keats House Poet in Residence, will give you the chance to read, explore and discuss some of Keats' most significant poetry in the location in which many of them were written. Poems include "The Odes" and "The Eve of St.Agnes".
