The School of Life presents ‘The wisdom of poetry’
Wed 18 Nov 2015, 1.00pm–2.00pm
Language is all around us. We overhear people speaking on mobile phones, we read huge quantities of words online, and we see phrases and idioms on billboards, on t-shirts and in shop windows. If every word were a drop of rain, we’d drown in a flood each and every day. But what are we to do with all this language? Join writer, editor and printer Robert Wood in this lunchtime session exploring how key thinkers—and their ideas—have shaped the field of poetry. Through interactive exercises, we’ll put some of their ideas into practice, and explore how we might apply their wisdom in our own lives.
