Prof. Eva Zettelmann (Universität Wien): Cultural Memory and the Contemporary British Poetry Scene

This lecture focuses on contemporary British poetry (Carol Ann Duffy, Simon Armitage, Alice Oswald, Patience Agbabi, Kate Tempest et al.). It tries to shed light on the specific character of the British poetry scene by referring to the notion of ‚cultural memory‘, i.e., the body of culture-specific knowledge centring on the past which, through its assessment of a community’s shared history, governs the way a society defines itself.
