The early Middle English period Poetry The Norman Conquest worked no immediate transformation on either the language or the literature of the English. But even before the conquest, rhyme had begun to supplant rather than supplement alliteration in some poems, which continued to use the older four-stress line, although their rhythms varied from the set types used in classical Old English verse. Influence of French poetry By the end of the 12th century, English poetry had been so heavily influenced by French models that such a work as the long epic Brut c. The Brut exists in two manuscripts, one written shortly after and the other some 50 years later. That the later version has been extensively modernized and somewhat abridged suggests the speed with which English language and literary tastes were changing in this period. The Proverbs of Alfred was written somewhat earlier, in the late 12th century; these proverbs deliver conventional wisdom in a mixture of rhymed couplets and alliterative lines, and it is hardly likely that any of the material they contain actually originated with the king whose wisdom they celebrate. The early 13th-century Bestiary mixes alliterative lines, three- and four-stress couplets, and septenary heptameter lines, but the logic behind this mix is more obvious than in the Brut and the Proverbs, for the poet was imitating the varied metres of his Latin source. More regular in form than these poems is the anonymous Poema morale in septenary couplets, in which an old man delivers a dose of moral advice to his presumably younger audience. By far the most brilliant poem of this period is The Owl and the Nightingale written after , an example of the popular debate genre. The two birds argue topics ranging from their hygienic habits, looks, and songs to marriage, prognostication, and the proper modes of worship.

Georgina Lochrane, who also goes by the name Genie, said the six-year-old would be “proud” to see what locals on the Isle of Bute have done following her death, as she thanked them for their support. The heartbroken mum took to a Facebook group to say thank you and apologise for not being able to attend a vigil islanders organised for Alesha on Sunday night.

Origins[ edit ] A university in the city of Canterbury was first considered in , when an anticipated growth in student numbers led several residents to seek the creation of a new university, including Kent. However, the plans never came to fruition. In the Education Committee of Kent County Council explored the creation of a new university,  formally accepting the proposal unanimously on 24 February The name adopted reflected the support of both the city and county authorities; as well as the existence of the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, which officially opposed the use of a name too similar to its own.
However, the four original colleges — Darwin, Eliot, Keynes and Rutherford — remain, together with the newer Woolf and Turing colleges, each with their own masters. In July the tunnel collapsed, damaging part of the Cornwallis Building, which sank nearly a metre within about an hour on the evening of 11 July.

Wanborough, The Manor and The Great Barn In the Cistercian monks from Waverley Abbey near Farnham built a great barn in which to store the annual harvest of arable crops and sheep fleeces from Wanborough manor which the order controlled. The Cistercian system of recruiting lay brothers, who were men lacking the education to become fully fledged monks but who wanted the discipline of religious life, enabled large farming operations to be run efficiently and dependably for the order under the supervision of a bailiff.
The Abbey secured the right to hold an annual fair at Wanborough for three days from August 23rd and also provided for a piepowder court 1 to settle trading and other offences. The Great Barn was constructed from huge oak timbers, much of which is still in place today.

I was actually the DJ on the very last night at the Adam and Eve and it came as quite a shock when the woman who owned it called us all together at the end of the night to say it was closing. We had a wonderful Sunday afternoon at her house finishing off the booze a week or so later but I’ve always wondered what happened to all the records! All I can remember about her house was the parquet floor which I had never seen before and probably bored my parents senseless talking about it.
My memories of Henry’s Records are also quite vivid as they tried to prise me away from HMV where I worked in the store in the Bargate at that time. I used to get on very well with John Clare, both as a customer and friend and every so often I would buy the records for the Adam and Eve from there as well. I went on to work for HMV in various positions for 30 years and travelled the world with them but it all started in Southampton in the heady days of so I’ve got many memories of vinyl, 8 tracks, open reel tape, cassettes, CD’s etc Thanks for bringing it all back.
