Poetry group: Philip Larkin, The White Lion, Wednesday 4th Jan, 8pm

Poetry appreciation group will kick off on Jan 4th with Philip Larkin, as agreed by our well-attended little steering group. Poems to be picked and circulated a week in advance (links posted here) for this first session by @Luirette. To fit in with Book Club, after that the next session will be on Jan 18th (Robert Frost, chosen by @krappyrubsnif) and we’ll take it from there. All welcome - no cost, no previous knowledge, experience or reading necessary, simply a chance to find out about and discuss some poetry. Complete beginners to poetry welcome. We’ll do a few poems each time, by a different poet each session, taking it in turns to choose the poems. Other poets already decided on so far are the War Poets (especially Siegfried Sassoon), John Donne, and Carol Anne Duffy. Just turn up, though notification would be helpful to make sure we reserve a table of the right size!
