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:
Poetry by Simon Armitage (poems to be decided)
The art of James McNeill Whistler
