17th September, ANNUAL AGM, and Byron Society Lecture
‘Coming in from the Cold: Re-examining the relationship between Polidori and Byron’ by Andrew and Suzanne Edwards. ‘Poor Polidori’ or ‘Polly Dolly’ are just two of the dismissive epithets bestowed on Dr John William Polidori, which reflect his marginalization in the retelling of events from the summer of 1816. This talk will explore the poet’s journey via the incidents and events recorded by his physician, with the intention of sympathetically portraying Polidori as a three-dimensional human-being, warts and all, rather than a simple caricature.
