Introduction

A spirited homage to the departed literary greats?set in an entrancing English village?this novel tells the tale of a profound autumn term with Poe, Yeats, Whitman, Dickinson, and the Brontës.

“I am walking along a country lane with no earthly idea why . . .”

Poet Glyn Maxwell wakes up in a mysterious village one autumn day. He has no idea how he got there?is he dead? In a coma? Dreaming??but he has a strange feeling there’s a class to teach. And isn’t that the poet Keats wandering down the lane? Why not ask him to give a reading, do a Q and A, hit the pub with the students afterwards?

Soon the whole of the autumn term stretches ahead, with Byron, Yeats and Emily Dickinson, the Brontës, the Brownings, Edgar Allan Poe, Walt Whitman, Wilfred Owen, and many more all on their way to give readings in the humble village hall.

And everything these famed personalities say?in class, on stage, at the Cross Keys pub?comes verbatim from these poets’ diaries, essays, or letters. A dreamy novel of a profound autumn term with Poe, Yeats, Whitman, Dickinson, and the Brontës.
