Masterclass with Brian Nellist: Book One of The Excursion by William Wordsworth (otherwise known as ‘The Ruined Cottage’ or ‘Margaret’)

10.30am – 3.00pm, Tuesday 24th March, Tuesday 7th April
19 Abercromby Square, Liverpool, L69 7ZG

Come to read and discuss ‘Margaret’ with other readers, in the company of The Reader Organisation’s great literary-lover Brian Nellist. ‘The Ruined Cottage’ is a story of human loss and pain so enormous that it seems as though it would totally destroy you. In fact, it does the opposite. The poem calls on, even develops, a sympathy and sensitivity to suffering that means to call it tragedy, as Brian says, is not the right response…

consolation springs,
From sources deeper far than deepest pain.

With nearly fifty years experience teaching the reading of literature, Brian Nellist brings serious wisdom, deep attention and an engaging manner to bear on one of William Wordsworth’s greatest poems.

This is a wonderful opportunity for Get Into Reading practitioners and lovers of literature alike to hone their skills and to spend quality time with the tools of our trade: great company and great literature.
