Speaker

  • Dr Matthew Ingleby - Queen Mary, University of London

In 1902, the young German poet Rainer Maria Rilke arrived in Paris, enthralled by Rodin’s work. Remaining in the city until 1910, he wrote about the sculptor, in the form of both poem and essay. Join us for an exploration of the relationship between poetry and sculpture in general, and between the creative work of these two friends in particular.

Dr Matthew Ingleby, Lecturer in Victorian Literature, Queen Mary, University of London – talk and poetry reading

Curated by Dr Charlotte de Mille
