Event description

Description

The fourteenth annual T S Eliot Festival at Little Gidding

Sunday 7 July 2019

“If you came this way ...”
TS Eliot at Little Gidding

An inspirational day of talks, readings, and discussions near the pig-sty, the dull façade, and the tombstone — all made famous by Eliot’s great poem.

  • The annual Little Gidding Lecture, sponsored by the T S Eliot International Summer School, will be delivered by Robert Von Hallberg, Professor of English Language and Literature at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California.
  • Michael Hrebeniak, college lecturer at Wolfson and Magdalene, Cambridge, will talk about “The Epoch of Space: The Waste Land as Collage”.
  • Mary Ann Lund, Associate Professor in Renaissance English Literature at the University of Leicester, will present, “Meditating on Little Gidding, Part 1”.
  • An annual tradition continues: “My favourite Eliot”, with contributions from the audience.
  • The programme concludes with Ali Smith reading “Little Gidding.” Sebastian Barry has described Smith, the author of ten novels and five collections of short stories, as “Scotland’s Nobel laureate-in-waiting.”

The Festival takes place in the garden of Ferrar House at Little Gidding. In addition to the programme of Eliot-related events, morning coffee, a two-course buffet lunch, and afternoon tea will be served. Doors open at 10:30, and the Festival concludes at 4:30.

All meals and refreshment are included in the ticket price £40.
(For members of the T S Eliot Society and the Friends of Little Gidding, tickets are £30; for students, £20.)
