Description

From the Literary Collections at the University of Nottingham

In 2015 Nottingham became one of only 20 cities around the world to be recognised by UNESCO as a City of Literature – a reflection of the city’s unique literary heritage and creativity. This exhibition of material from the literary archives and collections of printed books held by the University of Nottingham, highlights the work of Nottinghamshire writers and the treasures to be found in the historic collections of local literature lovers. It also looks at the University’s role in shaping the reputations and inspiring the early careers of local poets and authors.

This exhibition offers the opportunity to see a range of literary material including a masterpiece of medieval poetry and the recently acquired, previously unknown typescript of Pansies (a late collection of poems by DH Lawrence which attracted the attention of the Home Office on grounds of indecency). Visitors will also see a curious manuscript describing the antics of ‘Restoration rock star’ poet, the Earl of Rochester.

Exhibition open Tuesday-Friday 11am-4pm
Saturday & Sunday 12noon-4pm
Closed on Mondays

The exhibition has been curated by staff from Manuscripts and Special Collections at the University of Nottingham.
