China’s Greatest Poet: The Story of Du Fu – Talk by SACU President Michael Wood
November 30, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
‘There’s Shakespeare, there’s Dante, and there’s Du Fu: these are the poets who created the very values by which poetry is judged; they defined the emotional vocabulary of their culture.’ Stephen Owen.
In this free illustrated talk Professor Michael Wood OBE, BBC presenter, author, and SACU President, will follow the poet Du Fu’s journey around China – which took place in the midst of one of the worst wars in Chinese history – and explore why his poetry is still treasured by the Chinese people today.
Presented by Kensington Wade School in partnership with SACU.
Kensington Wade is currently located on Fulham Palace Road, directly opposite Charing Cross Hospital, and is well served by public transport.
