Alexander Bubb and Elleke Boehmer
Alexander Bubb and Elleke Boehmer, ‘Meeting Without Knowing It: The Intertwined Lives of Rudyard Kipling and W.B. Yeats’. Question and answer session
Question and answer session. Original talk is a separate podcast.
Kipling and Yeats were, for much of their careers, irreconcilable political enemies. However, a cross-reading of the two poets' bardic ambitions, heroic tropes and interpretations of history reveals that, to achieve their opposed political ends, they frequently partook of a common discourse. Alexander Bubb will discuss his forthcoming publication, in a talk, and in conversation with Elleke Boehmer.
