Dan Jacobson has prepared a lecture for the next Britannia volume on the poetry of Thomas Hardy and T. S. Eliot. His argument is that Hardy is the greater of the two poets.
Dan Jacobson alas will not be able to attend but an abbreviated version of his lecture will be read. Betty Sue Flowers and Tom Staley will respond.
The session will be a tribute to Betty Sue Flowers, who has been a British Studies stalwart since the founding of the seminar in 1975. As members of the seminar will probably know, she is retiring as Director of the LBJ Library and moving to New York City. We will miss her at the Friday afternoon seminar sessions and will always look forward to the times she can be with us while visiting Austin.
