"Meeting held at 7, Marlborough Avenue. 15th Jan, 1944     A. G. Joselin in the chair. <br/> <br/> [...] <br/> <br/> 2. The minutes of the last meeting were read and signed <br/> <br/> [...] <br/> <br/> 5. Howard Smith opened the evening on Shelley with a biographical sketch. [...] <br/> <br/> 6. We adjourned for refreshment[.] <br/> <br/> 7. F. E. Pollard read “Ode to the West Wind” <br/> <br/> 8. Margaret Dilks gave brief appreciation of Shelley’s poetry. This started a general discussion in which nearly all took part — whether he influenced or was influenced by his contempor[ar]ies , & what effect he had, if any, on future poets. On these questions opinion varied, but all agreed with F. E. Pollard that Shelley’s verse is supremely ‘poetical’. <br/> <br/> 9. To illustrate Shelley’s passion for liberty and reform Bruce Dilks read from “The Masque of Anarchy” which was inspired by the Peterloo Massacre in 1819. <br/> <br/> 10. Rosamund Wallis read some stanzas from “Adonais”. F. E. Pollard read a short poem entitled “A Lament”[.] Thus, our thoughts being with the departed, the meeting ended on a lighter note. One member quoted a touching little verse from the Berkshire Chronicle In Memoriam notices, which another capped by some lines written by a school-boy on the relative merits of perpetual roasting and eternal hymn-singing. Lines which gained the boy a severe reprimand from his head-master, and a ‘Fiver’ from his father. <br/> <br/> [signed as a true record by] S A Reynolds 14/2/44"
