All welcome at next Monday’s seminar

Please join us for next Monday’s lunchtime Archives & Texts seminar where Dr Hannah Sullivan (Oxford) will be giving a paper on ‘The Art of the Carriage Return: Free Verse, lineation and the typewriter’

1-2pm in URS 2s26

(Hannah Sullivan is Associate Professor of English at Oxford University, and a fellow of New College. Her first book The Work of Revision (Harvard, 2013) analysed the way in which modernist style was shaped by revision, especially revision on typescript; it was awarded the Rose Mary Crawshay Prize from the British Academy in 2014, and the 2015 University English Prize for a first book. She is now writing a new book on free verse. Her talk will ask whether there is a connection between the difficulty and finality of “return” on the typewriter and new kinds of lineation in early 20c free verse.
