Professor of Poetry lecture with Alice Oswald – Anonymous and Onymous

The next Professor of Poetry lecture with Alice Oswald will take place on Friday, 24 February 2023 at 5.30pm at the Examination Schools, University of Oxford. The title of the talk will be 'Anonymous and Onymous'.

Booking is not required. Seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

The Professor of Poetry lectures were conceived in 1708 by Berkshire landowner Henry Birkhead and began after he bequeathed some money so it could be a valuable supplement to the curriculum. The current Professor of Poetry is Professor Alice Oswald. She will be giving one lecture each term for the four years of her tenure. You can watch and listen to her previous talks on the Professor of Poetry page.
