Description

A fun and fascinating tour of the oral tradition and the poetic movements that have shaped history presented by a former National Poetry Slam Champion. From the oral tradition to the Edinburgh Fringe, from Virgil to Biggy Smalls, meet the poetic movements that have shaped history. Why have wordsmiths always been vilified, feared and revered? This fun and fascinating performance lecture follows July’s release of the groundbreaking new book Stage Invasion: Poetry & the Spoken Word Renaissance.
