The School of Night

Taking its name from the semi-mythical secret literary society of the late sixteenth century, the School of Night is an after-hours talk-shop and seminar that will meet about once a fortnight within the School of English at Leeds. The subject is poetry and the close reading of text: four or five poems by existing authors on a single theme or subject will be circulated in advance and will form the basis of informal discussion. The sessions will be convened by Professor of Poetry Simon Armitage. All welcome.
