Last night we had a bonfire on Campus and, since the study of English Literature is a component of the Degree at Campion, we sat round the fire and read poetry to oneanother. The setting was completely absorbing: a warm, still night, near the lake under the trees. Everyone chose their favourite writers; some knew their pieces off by heart. Australian poets and classical English writers. I chose a part of "Mort d'Arthur" by Tennyson - " ... and on a sudden, lo, the level lake and the long glories of the winter moon ..." etc. Our recitations, together with some Tandoori chicken which I had prepared and some Australian beer, set the scene for some very good culture on Campus.
