POSTPONED London: A History in Verse with Mark Ford, Maura Dooley, Christopher Reid, Ahren Warner

Tuesday 12th June 2012 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

Mark Ford's anthology of London poetry offers a broad and enthralling selection, ranging from Chaucer to the present day. Taking in traditional favourites such as Spenser and Dryden, through Pope, Swift, Johnson and Byron, to the provocative modernism of Eliot and Pound, the selection shows how poets reflected and responded to the city's shifting culture, politics and economy. Ford, an English professor at University College London and distinguished literary critic, is also one of our finest poets and a long-time resident of London, with an unrivalled knowledge of the poetry inspired by the city. At Foyles, he will be joined for drinks and readings from the anthology by equally acclaimed poets Maura Dooley (Life Under Water), Christopher Reid (Sounds Good), and Ahren Warner (Confer).

Venue: The Gallery at Foyles.
Tickets: Free, but need to be reserved by adding the required number to the basket below or by emailing events@foyles.co.uk. No physical tickets will be issued: the order confirmation you will receive after adding ticket/s to your basket is your proof of reservation.

This event has been postponed due to unforeseen circumstances and will be rescheduled for later in the year.
