14 May 2019: Poetry And… the Interpretation of Dreams

 

Chapel, King’s Building – 7.15pm

 
With prize-winning poet and editor of The Poetry Review Emily Berry, and Darian Leader, psycho-analyst, best-selling author, and member of the Centre for Freudian Analysis & Research. Emily’s collection Stranger, Baby draws on Freud, mining his words and fascination with dreams, but challenging the limits of his therapy in a moving interrogation of her own response to her mother’s death when she was a child.

Their readings and interaction will be chaired by Professor of Poetry Ruth Padel, followed by free refreshment, book-signings, and an opportunity to talk to the speakers.
