Poetry on the Plaza: Ballads and Balladeers

Wed, October 1, 2008 • 12:00 PM

The Harry Ransom Center presents the free Poetry on the Plaza event Ballads and Balladeers on Wednesday, October 1, at noon.

Popularized by the Romantics, the ballad is a unique narrative form of poetry that conveys stories of love, heroes, and tragedies. Students from University of Texas at Austin professor Andrew Cooper's "Romantic Authorship" course read ballads by traditional English poets John Keats, William Wordsworth, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, as well as modern and folk interpretations of the ballad form.

Pick up a free Poetry on the Plaza poster and bookmark with the 2008-09 schedule at the visitors' desk in the Ransom Center lobby.
