by the 6th Visiting Professor of the Centre


Professor Herbert Tucker (University of Virginia)

‘Compost Happens’

Monday 6 March 2017 in the Conference Suite from 5.30pm

wine reception 5.30 – 6.30pm

lecture and discussion 6.30 – 8.00pm


This year’s public lecture showcases how preoccupied Victorian literature was with decomposition, breakdown and decay.

Herbert Tucker will illuminate the underlying anxieties in works by Charles Dickens, Alfred Tennyson, Robert Browning, Thomas Hardy and others, revealing how all these writers used the image of decomposition as a way of talking about individual breakdown. He’ll be ‘talking rot’!
