Close analysis of text will often reveal unexpected insights into the poet’s skill, imagination, emotion and message.   It can enhance our understanding of the underlying artistry that contributes to the whole.   So – what makes a good poem?   What does each poem teach us about the poet’s craft?

In 2017, the group will examine the features of a chronological range of some works of some English poets, starting with Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Seats are limited; please contact Libby about vacancies.
