Description

Join us for the launch of the 2019 Festival, including:

6pm Larkin and Hughes: Poets and Rivals

Philip Larkin and Ted Hughes were two giants of twentieth-century poetry. Both were strongly associated with Yorkshire, both belonged to Faber and Faber – one of the world’s great poetry publishers – and both were nominated for the Poet Laureateship, a role Hughes took up in 1984. But with their strikingly different personalities and ideas about poetry, these two writers enjoyed a long-standing and often hilarious rivalry. Come along to find out more about their lives, their work, and that rivalry.

This exhibition is curated by final-year English Literature & Creative Writing students at the University of Huddersfield, in partnership with the Philip Larkin Society and Hull History Centre. It will run from 20 March – 21 July 2019 at the Heritage Quay, University of Huddersfield.
