Casanova: Lyric and Lust
Fri 6 May 2016, 18:30 – 19:15 BST
Poet in the City presents the next in its series of pre-concert poetry events at Kings Place.
BBC3 Free Thinking's Shahidha Bari presents an irresistible poetry pop-up of lusty lyrics from throughout history, as she takes you on a sensuous tour of poetry playboys from Rumi to John Donne, Keats and beyond! Come along to the foyer stage, to have your eyes and ears seduced by poems from some of the biggest heart-breakers in verse.
Dr. Shahidha Bari is Lecturer in Romanticism at Queen Mary, University of London. She is a co-founder of the intellectual salon, How to Live. She is a member of the editorial board of New Formations and is one of ten AHRC BBC Radio 3 ‘New Generation Thinkers’ selected in 2011. In 2014 she was awarded the Anthony Burgess award for arts criticism for her essay on Medea.
