The T J Clark Seminar at Keble

Poems about paintings have long been part of literary tradition, and many such poems go on being written. Why? What is hoped for from them? What is involved in the passage from picture to word? This seminar series will look at particular poems and paintings, ancient and modern, with such questions in mind.

The Poetry & Painting seminars, with world renowned art historian Professor Timothy Clark, take place three times a year.

The next seminar in the series will continue our exploration of responses to Bruegel, and is provisionally entitled ‘Just a Smack at Auden’

The seminar will take place at 5.30 pm on Thursday 14th November 2024 in The Pusey Room at Keble. Handout to follow. Free entry, all welcome, no tickets or booking required.
