The Mysteries of Writing Poems and Plays

A series of lectures offering an exploration of how writers write in relation to genre and how this shapes the ways in which we read or understand the performance of a poem or play. To complement the works analysed in the previous year, Professor Jack will analyse T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets and some of Sylvia Plath's poetry, before moving on to focus on theatre as a genre, looking at works by Ibsen, Chekhov, Beckett and Stoppard.
