Poetry Landmarks

Clare Hall, Cambridge


(Associated Place)


Poet Laureate William Whitehead was probably most associated with Clare Hall, Cambridge in terms of both a landmark and an institution. He first arrived at Clares in 1735 as a sizar, and went on to become a fellow in 1742. It was also during his time at Cambridge that he published the epistle "On the Danger of Writing Verse 1".
