Keats-Shelley Memorial Association at the Cheltenham Literary Festival: Adam Nicolson on the Making of Poetry
10th October 2019, 3.30 pm
The Keats-Shelley Memorial Association begins its Keats-Shelley 200 Bi-Centenary programme by supporting Adam Nicolson's event at the Cheltenam Literary Festival.
In his new book The Making of Poetry, acclaimed author Adam Nicolson narrates Wordsworth and Coleridge's 'Year of Marvels': how two young men of genius, William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, lived together in the Quantock Hills, producing subversive and astonishing works such as Kubla Khan, The Ancient Mariner, Lyrical Ballads and Tintern Abbey.
Adam is joined by the artist Tom Hammick who produced the woodcuts that illustrate The Making of Poetry.
In conversation with James Marriott of The Times. With selected poetry readings from a special guest.
The event takes place at the Inkpot. Tickets priced £8.
