Although we knew the work of individual members of The Rhymers Club, we had very little knowledge of the group to which they belonged in the 1890’s and how it operated.
This called for a little background information and some individual enquiry. It was clear that everyone had made an effort and it was a successful meeting. Poems by Ernest Dowson, Francis Thompson, Arthur Symmons, W.B. Yeats, Oscar Wilde and John Davidson were read, often introduced with snippets from members’ own research.
This was the last meeting of term and we start up again for The Summer Term on April 26th.
