Please join us for a discussion of Bob’s work on the U.S. lecture tours embarked upon by modernist writers in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Bob will offer an analysis of how W.H. Auden’s World War II lectures on Shakespeare influenced his poetry. After Bob’s opening remarks, there will be a Q&A session with the audience.
