The literary style of Sir Thomas Browne : A talk for Sir Thomas Browne Day by George Szirtes 
Sir Thomas Browne died on his birthday, 19 October 1682 and so to mark the day, there is an annual talk about some aspect of, or inspired by, the man, his life or his work.
This year, poet George Szirtes - who also wrote the words for the Talking Statue of Browne on Hay Hill, Norwich -  will initiate a discussion about Browne’s style of writing, what he chose to write about, his ideas and the way he communicated with the people around him. George does not claim to be an expert on Browne but, as a writer, is fascinated by his literary style and choice of subject matter - Browne was curious about many things that were happening around him in the 17th century.
This will be an informal session and a chance to talk about Browne with others after George’s talk which will be around 40 minutes. The talk is aimed at anyone with an interest in literature, Browne, philsophy, curiosity, history or indeed of many of Browne's polymath traits. There will be a pay bar until approx 8.30pm
Pay what you can on the door, suggestion £3-£5
Please RSVP via Eventbrite (no money required) or call 07946 261651
organised by the Thomas Browne Project         Supported by The Norwich Freemen’s
