A History of the Eighteenth Century in Ten Poems

The latest DMI podcast is now available. In 'The Joys of Cricket' Adam Rounce, one of the consultants of the DMI project, discusses how the eighteenth century viewed sport by exploring James Dance's Cricket: An Heroic Poem. You can find the podcast here.

This is the second in a series of ten short podcasts on quirky aspects of eighteenth-century life, a series intended to offer an alternative history of the eighteenth century. The first in the series, Laurence Williams' investigation of 'Poetry and Tobacco', is available to listen to and download here.

This series is just one of many podcasts available from the English Faculty at Oxford. Others - ranging from specially recorded podcasts to lectures and talks - can be found on the faculty's podcast page. And many other Oxford University podcasts can be discovered here.
