The Literary Landscapes of Winifred Holtby with Dr Ruth Beckett

October 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

£5

Discover the ways in which Winifred Holtby drew upon the people and landscape of the East Riding to explore themes which transcend time and place in South Riding.

‘The Literary Landscapes of Winifred Holtby’ will explore the relationship between people and place, looking especially at the influence of the East Riding on the novels of Winifred Holtby. Extending from the Yorkshire Wolds to the vast expanse of Holderness, as well as suburban Cottingham and further afield, it is a landscape which is as much a mindset as a geographical location, shaped by history and social expectation as well as by the characters themselves. Though the main focus will be on South Riding, reference will also be made to Anderby Wold, A Crowded Street and other writings of Winifred Holtby
