Places of Inspiration: Identifying the Places that Inspired Edward Thomas

September 8, 2020

Discover some of the locations that inspired the work of poet, Edward Thomas.

Some of the locations of Thomas’s poems are obvious, others have been identified through the poet’s writings and some may be composite or imaginary landscapes. However there are a number of poems where more precise identification is possible drawing on his extensive writings and observations, including his field note books and letters, and other contemporary sources as well as by walking the ground.

Our speaker, Nick Denton, who is working to discover these locations, will cover his progress so far, putting his findings in the context of the countryside in England and Wales that Edward Thomas knew and loved.

This talk will take place as a prerecorded presentation followed by a live Q+A with Nick on Zoom. Details of how to take part will be sent after booking your place!
