Literature at Lunchtime: Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath

Tell a friend:

29th January 2013 - 12 noon

Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

Presented in The Victoria Room

Our highly popular series of lunchtime lectures on great works of literature are brought to you by Dr Jane Mackay.  A graduate of three universities, Jane’s obvious love for her subject, penetrating insight, wit, warmth and humanity continue to enthral.

Ted Hughes & Sylvia Plath

A chance to revue the most famous literary marriage of the 20th Century.

Sylvia's suicide in 1963 led to a feminist campaign against Ted, who later became Poet Laureate. With Ted's death in 1998 and the passage of time, is it possible to get a balanced sense of the achievements of both poets?

Please note: Literature at Lunchtime only, there is no Booking Fee for Cash Transactions
