Franklin: Death in the Ice

'Strong in will/To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield' - 'Ulysses', Tennyson

Published just three years before Franklin embarked on his final, fateful expedition, 'Ulysses' features the archetypal adventurer who, like Franklin, cannot resist setting forth yet again. At the heart of this short course will be the Romantic preoccupation with castaways and outcasts (which Tennyson inherited).

Entry to Death in the ice exhibition is included.
