We are delighted to open this year’s series with two talks on aspects of Ezra Pound’s poetry:

"Oh my England": Memory and Revaluation in the Cantos

Jack Baker, Department of English Studies, Durham University


"The Peasant's bent shoulders" / "gritty grinding": The politics of labour poeticised in Ezra Pound and Basil Bunting

Inventions of the Text is the Department of English Studies staff-student forum, run by postgraduate students. It is an opportunity for postgraduate students and staff to present their research, and to contribute to lively discussion on key issues raised.

Full programme for the academic year 2011/12 will be announced shortly. All sessions will be held in the Hallgarth House Seminar Room on Hallgarth Street and followed by drinks and discussion at the Victoria pub, Hallgarth Street.
