Chatterton Lecture

Chatterton Lecture

Chatterton Lectures on Poetry

The Chatterton Lecture is given by an early career scholar, on the life and works of a deceased poet who had written in the English language. The lecture series was established through a bequest from E H W Meyerstein, and named after the poet Thomas Chatterton. It was first delivered in 1955.

The lecture is given every two years.  I gave the 2018 lecture, on Edward Thomas.
