Thu 9 May

SHOW INFORMATION

WILL ABBERLEY – on Richard Jefferies: Nature Writing Power.
Presented in association with the Richard Jefferies Museum.

Nature writing has boomed in recent years but who were its real pioneers? Whose writing not only influenced later authors but also prefigured themes that would come to dominate nature writing today, particularly in Britain?

In the Festival’s first Richard Jefferies Lecture, the case will be made for Swindon’s Richard Jefferies as a pioneer of modern nature writing.

Broadcaster, BBC New Generation Thinker, Senior Lecturer in Victorian Literature at the University of Sussex and author of English Fiction and the Evolution of Language, Dr Will Abberley is currently working on a history of British nature writing.
