2—' Dejection,' by S. T. Coleridge
Talk by A. Alvarez
The poem is read by Christopher Hassall before and after the talk
In this series critics are invited to take a single poem and examine it in as much detail as they see fit in order to bring out the full meaning.
' Modern poetry,' Mr. Alvarez says,
' has brought about a queer change in our tastes and reading habits. Nowadays we take the very obscure poetry of the seventeenth century quite in our stride. Romantic poetry, so much simpler in language and even in aims, we find more difficult.' In the ode Dejection, ' there is an informal intimacy, a coolness and candour which add up to the prime poetic virtue: creative objectivity.'
Translated oy Peter Watts from
Denis Marion 's comedy
' Le Juge de Malte' and with Arthur Lawrence

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
