Autumn Selection

Autumn selection

Time for a second selection of cultural offerings to be explored over the next three months and to be discussed in October (scarily it will be autumn by then!). As before we have chosen a book, a film, an album, an artist and a poet. And as before it’s a varied choice. With the exception of the artist all are contemporary choices with a book, album and film all released within the last twelve months.  Given the huge scope possible when looking at the works of a poet, we have decided to only consider some specific works, in order to focus in the final discussion and conversation.

So this quarter’s choices are:

The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) starring Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Martin Scorsese

How To Build A Girl by Caitlin Moran

If You Wait by London Grammar

Poetry by Simon Armitage (poems to be decided)

The art of James McNeill Whistler
