Event description

Description

Hannah More in Context brings together all those interested in one of the south west's most influential, and neglected, writers - Hannah More (1745-1833). Poet, playwright, novelist, teacher, moralist, Hannah More's career was as diverse as it was long. Friend to the most influential political and cultural figures of her age - including William Wilberforce, David Garrick, Elizabeth Montagu and many others - More's life and work helped shape an era.

Hannah More in Context will be held at Barley Wood House in Wrington, the home that More built for herself and her four sisters in 1801. Participants will have the opportunity to enjoy tours of Barley Wood house and grounds – which More helped design and plant – thanks to the support of the house’s owners, YMCA Somerset. There will also be an opportunity to hear experts from across the world speaking about Hannah More, including a plenary lecture from Professor Patricia Demers (University of Alberta), author of an acclaimed biography of More.
