Dove Cottage
2.00 - 3.00pm

This event is now fully booked. Please take a look at our other fireside talks in December here.

Join us in the Dove Cottage houseplace this winter to listen to talks from Wordsworth Trust staff on topics connected to Wordsworth and Romanticism that particularly interest them and afterwards enjoy tea and toast by the fire.

A significant idea that developed in the Romantic era was an understanding of the importance of childhood. Wordsworth drew much inspiration from his own childhood memories and in his writing portrays an idealistic yet cautious character, as well as documenting how his relationship to the natural world was forged. His deep connection to his sister Dorothy also has its roots in their childhoods. Amy Hall, Visitor Experience Trainee, will look at Wordsworth’s writings on his childhood experiences and discuss the reasons they were so important to him in later life.

Cost: £7 (including tea & toast)
