1922
a talk by Paul Binding
at the Church Barn
Time – 2pm’The world broke in two in 1922 or thereabouts,’ said the great American writer, Willa Cather. Certainly it was a spectacular and revolutionary year for literature when new things were done unlike anything that had gone before – James Joyce’s Ulysses, D H Lawrence’s Aaron’s Rod, T S Eliot’s The Waste Land (that, most influential of all, in key respects), major stories by Katherine Mansfield, Virginia Woolf’s Jacob’s Room. Paul will look at these great works (still modern, even ‘new’, after 100 years) and try to see  why and how they came about when they did, and what was going on in the world at the time.
Admission – FREE, donations to festival funds invited.
