Reading Group – Christopher Smart

March 14, 2011

This session we will be looking at the works of Christopher Smart, including his Song to David (1763) and an extract from Fragment B of Jubilate Agno, probably written between 1759 and 1763, but unpublished in Smart’s lifetime. Both pieces are closely associated with his confinement in St Luke’s Hospital for the Insane (1757-8) and a private madhouse in Bethnal Green (1758-1763).

The session will be introduced by Chris Reid and will be followed as usual by convivial discussion and drinks.

All Welcome
