The Professor of Poetry lectures were conceived in 1708 by Berkshire landowner Henry Birkhead and began after he bequeathed some money so it could be a valuable supplement to the curriculum. The current Professor of Poetry is Professor Alice Oswald. She will be giving one lecture each term for the four years of her tenure.
