A Recitation of John Keats' Poetry; a Lecture on the Origin of Language and Music

November 3, 2018

 

By Fred Haight

 

This video discusses the origin of language in classical poetry rather than prose, the birth of both music and poetry from the musical qualities of the human voice, and the necessity of reviving a literate culture today, as informed by poetry, and poetic means of spoken communication.

 

Fred is a music scholar based in Toronto, Canada. More of his lectures can be found here.
