First lecture

I gave my first ever university lecture yesterday on Allen Ginsberg's poem "Howl" and Sylvia Plath's poem "Daddy" for a first year poetics class. It was a wonderful experience and I think it went well. I got great feedback from the lecturer and my amazing freinds, who came along to a 5pm lecture on a Monday afternoon to support me, and then took me for a drink afterwards.  Thanks guys.

  3. It was a very absorbing lecture! So many details. I didn't know a quarter of the stuff you highlighted about Howl.
