Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.

Lucy Newlyn: Annual Wordsworth Lecture

Wednesday 20 Nov 2019, 18:00 to 19:00

Chancellor's Hall
Senate House
Malet Street


1802 was an extraordinary year in the Wordsworth circle. William and Dorothy were writing some of their most beautiful poetry and prose, while Coleridge's marriage was in a state of near collapse. Drawing on detailed knowledge of letters, poems, notebooks and journals, Professor Lucy Newlyn's new book Vital Stream (Carcanet Press, 2019) explores their thoughts and feelings about love, family bonds, friendship and creativity at this time. In this lecture, she will read from her collection and describe how she has re-told a famous love story for a modern audience, in sonnet-form.
