Some months ago (in autumn) I alluded to the book launch for Translating Myth which was held at the British Centre for Literary Translation at UEA. I’ve written a belated report on the event for the Essex Centre for Myth Studies blog.
In March, Leon Burnett gave a talk on the myth of Ariadne for the Centre for Myth Studies at the University of Essex. He explained his theory of myth’s emotional logic, and the importance of the image over the linear narrative in myth. It was a persuasive and enjoyable talk, and my report is hosted over on the Essex Myth blog.
The Centre for Myth Studies at the University of Essex presents The Orpheus Project
Tuesday 8 May 2012
It was a great pleasure to host the Orpheus Project at the Essex Centre for Myth Studies this evening. Poet Lyndon Davies and artist Penny Hallas gave a genuinely exciting report, with speech, film and paint, on the activities of the project. How gladdening and terrifying to know that the Mysteries are active in Powys. You can follow their work on Orpheus, and other projects, via these links:
