The aim of this blog is to serve as a meeting point to those who study or have studied English philology and, more broadly, to all those who love literature and language.

In London it is not difficult to come across some reference to writers studied in the literature subjects of English Philology through nameplates indicating the relationship of a particular writer with a building, exhibits in museums and libraries, statues, etc. In my last visit to this city the “familiar encounter” took the shape of a sculptured John Betjeman looking up at St Pancras Station roof. The reason for this honour is the fact that Betjeman fought against the plans for the demolition of St Pancras Station in the 1960's.
