Rob Wyke on Wild Commons and Pulling Green Gages – images of Yorkshire in some C18th fictions

October 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| £20

Following on from last year’s Laurence Sterne lecture by the curator of Shandy Hall, this year the Laurence Sterne Trust’s Chairman will talk about the scenes painted by the words of Sterne, and his contemporary Tobias Smollett, to bring to life eighteenth-century Yorkshire in all its eccentric variety. Rob Wyke was, until his recent retirement, Second Master of Winchester College, teaching English Literature there with infectious enthusiasm.
