Description

'Reading Women's Experimental Poetry' by Professor Isobel Armstrong

This lecture speculates on new models of writing and reading poetry that deliberately move away from expectations of what a poem is. Sometimes termed a parallel tradition, this poetry is forging new terms. Women are particularly strong in this movement, including Carol Watts, Andrea Brady and Caroline Bergvall.

Isobel Armstrong is a fellow of the British Academy, Senior Research Fellow of the Institute of English Studies and Professor Emeritus at the University of Birkbeck. She was a Professor in the English department at Southampton from 1979-89. Her works include Victorian Poetry: Poetry, Poetics and Politics (1993), Victorian Glass Worlds: Glass culture and the imagination 1830-1880 (2008), The Radical Aesthetic (2000), and Novel Politics: Democratic Imaginations in Nineteenth-Century Fiction (2017).

The lecture will be chaired by Professor Mary Hammond, Chair of English and Book History at the University of Southampton.

There will be a drinks reception following the lecture.

Please note the booking deadline for this lecture is 6pm on 5th October 2017
