History: Aphra Behn: Poet, Playwright, Prisoner, Spy. Her Life & Times

Join tutor Michael Long on this fascinating one-off session, presented as part of Women's month, looking at the life of Aphra Behn. Aphra Behn was a playwright, poet, translator and royal spy. She was a woman in a world of men, a staunch Royalist, a spy, and condemned as a scarlet woman with loose morals. She was also the first woman in England to identify herself as a professional writer. She wrote to suit the occasion, and she wrote to make money. This is a brief look at her life and times rather than a focus on her literary achievements.

Art Appreciation: The Birth in Florence of the Italian Renaissance (Tadley Branch)

This Day School by guest speaker Mike Grundy describes the Early Renaissance in Italy, which saw the astonishing flowering of art, architecture and literature in Florence that lasted from the 13th to the 15th century and beyond. Students will learn how this explosion of high culture was made possible by the increasing wealth of Florence in the period from trade and finance and by the focus of the leading individuals of the city on Humanist thinking. This movement developed alongside the prevailing dominance in the arts of religious thinking and subject matter, but allowed more importance to be given to Man, his stories, works, tragedies and achievements.
