About the event

Join the Keats House Poetry Ambassadors for a reading of The Mask of Anarchy. Written by Percy Bysshe Shelley in response to the Peterloo massacre which occurred in St Peter’s Fields, Manchester, on 16 August 1819. Professor Ian Haywood of the University of Roehampton will discuss the poem’s historic context.

‘Shake your chains to earth like dew
Which in sleep had fallen on you –
Ye are many – they are few.’
