Wednesday 17th April
Join us for a 2 course friendly lunch which will be followed by a talk from Jeremy Holmes ‘Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know – Lord Byron and his Women’
Lord Byron wasn’t just a poet, he was more of a rock star. England’s most prominent and outrageous celebrity in the early nineteenth century, he lived life to excess – but his relations with women were completely scandalous. This talk explores those relationships in the context of some of Byron’s most well-known poetry, his extraordinary rise to fame and legend, and his place in the tradition of English Romantic poets.
