Literary Lectures Autumn Season 2023

Literary Lectures Autumn Season 2023

Dr Diana Hallam and Dr Michael Cade-Stewart have taught and lectured widely on English literature. They both studied literature at Oxford University and are passionate about bringing insider knowledge of classic novels, poetry and plays to a wider audience. Mad for books, they comb the literary research in search of the most thoughtful, instructive, eye-opening, entertaining, and juicy details for their lectures.

2 Oct.                    George Eliot’s 'Middlemarch': How (not) to live with other people.

9 Oct.                    Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It': Too much Cross-Dressing in the Forest?

16 Oct.                  'The Picture of Dorian Gray' and the Dangerous Convictions of Oscar Wilde.

30 Oct.                  W. B. Yeats: The Poetry of Revolution.

6 Nov.                   John Keats: Seduction in 'The Eve of St Agnes'.

13 Nov.                  Wit and Wisdom: Becket’s ‘Waiting for Godot’ and Tom Stoppard's 'Arcadia'.
