SUMMER WORDSWORTH 1978
During the two weeks from Saturday, 29 July to Saturday, 12 August 1978, the Eighth Annual Wordsworth Summer Conference will be held at Grasmere, in the English Lake District. According to Richard wordsworth, the Conference Director, “Although the poetry of Wordsworth and Coleridge is central to our discussions, . . . there is a great deal that would interest Blake specialists too . . . David Erdman has been with us for the last two years, and Horst Meller, of Heidelberg University, is another who has lectured on William Blake.” William Empson, Geoffrey Hartman, Robert Langbaum, and Thomas McFarland were among last year’s guest lecturers.
The conference is residential. Accommodation[e] is reserved in two hotels in Grasmere village. There are lectures morning and evening, and a daily seminar. In the afternoons and on weekends there is a program of excursions, walks, and climbs of varying severity.
The inclusive fee for the two weeks is $450, which covers accommodation at the hotel, all meals, local transportation, and other expenses on all main excursions, and attendance at all lectures and seminars.
