Great Video, do you have any suggestions for an encyclopedia? – there is so many to choose from!
This video is incredibly helpful, thank you. I was just wondering if when you were asked about the metaphysical poets whether that was a topic you had brought up yourself or you had previously been talking about, or was the question sprung on you?
I had been talking about John Donne specifically (I'd studied him at AS Level) and said I'd then gone on to read some George Herbert poetry independently as I'd heard they were both classed as metaphysical poets. The interviewer then asked whether I thought the term 'Metaphysical' was appropriate as a classification for both poets, and for the other poets often referred to as such.
Thank you. That's very good to know – I was worrying you'd have to know about or have read anything they might throw at you!
I'm a Japanese man who will study at Oxford University.
Your pronunciation is very decent and helpful,because unfortunately,we Japanese have little chance to hear Oxford English.
Thanks a lot.
what a silly expression, "read english".
