The Romantic Child

November 20, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Romantics invented the modern idea of childhood. In this talk, Gresham Professor of Rhetoric Jonathan Bate will explore how they did so, with particular emphasis on the role of children in the poetry of Blake and Wordsworth. He will also show how Wordsworth’s memory of his own childhood allowed him to invent something else – the art of poetic autobiography.
