The Culture Club: Theme For April-May 2007 (update)

No theme this month (unless you count the fact that they’re all English, which is a bit tenuous). Here’s what we’re looking at (and we’re still waiting for more specific information on exactly which poems – come on KC!) in detail, now that KC’s provided us with the specifics:

JH Prynne

  • Living in History
  • The Glacial Question, Unsolved
  • Charm Against Too Many Apples
  • Acquisition of Love
  • Smaller Than The Radius of the Planet
  • Sun Set 4.56
  • Of Movement Towards a Natural Place
  • Punishment Routines
  • Blue Slides At Rest


  • Upon Appleton House
  • The Mower Against Gardens
  • Damon the Mower
  • The Mower to the Glow-worms
  • The Mower’s Song
  • The Garden
  • An Horation Ode

Edward Elgar

  • Cello Concerto in E minor, op 85

Arthur Conan Doyle

  • The Hound of the Baskervilles

I’ll be posting thoughts, observations and links on these works, with the occasional diversion into general cultural matters, until the next meeting of the Culture Club on 5th May, 2007 (and possibly beyond).
