Meeting of 30th. October 2018

This was where we went back in time to the works of Andrew Marvell, Walter Raleigh and Thomas Traherne.

Ann Barlow started the meeting with an account of the life and works of the first two and Mavis Robinson told us about Thomas Traherne whose works were only fully appreciated after being found towards the end of the 19th. century on a street bookstall.

Thomas Traherne

Even then, he was mistaken at first for Henry Vaughan. Altogether, 7 poems by Traherne were read, 13 by Raleigh and 8 by Marvell.
