Birds in Literature


Ailsa Claybourn

What sort of owl is Harry Potter's Hedwig? Why did King Lear call his evil daughter a 'detested Kite'? Why was an albatross hung around a sailor's neck in Coleridge's 'The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner'? And what did Ted Hughes say his roosting hawk was not?


Ailsa Claybourn combines her love and knowledge of birds and English literature in this talk that is a must for anyone who shares either of Ailsaís passions.
