The English Department started the new term by inviting Upper and Lower Sixth Students and a couple of particularly ambitious Fifth Formers to the second annual G Wilson Knight Lecture.  We were thrilled to welcome back Georgina Hildick-Smith who delivered a superb lecture which considered gardens, private and public spaces, the female body, anti-feminist literature, the male gaze and literary space in Webster’s The Duchess of Malfi, Chaucer’s The Merchant’s Tale and Milton’s Paradise Lost.  The content was challenging for the Upper and Lower Sixth audience; detailed, scholarly and absolutely riveting throughout.
