Cancelled: Grief in Literature

— Uni of Bristol (Humanities Lecture Theatre, 7 Woodland Rd)
Explore grief in Literature as part of Good Grief Bristol
time:11:00
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

This session covers two topics.

Dr Lesel Dawson will examine grief in English Literature, exploring writers such as Ben Jonson, Alfred Tennyson, Elizabeth Bishop and Michel Faber. She investigates the relationship between creativity and grief and considers how expressions of loss are influenced by wider cultural ideas about mourning and death.

Dr Mimi Thebo will consider writing on grief for younger readers. Young people go through grief without prior experience of it and without knowledge of its rituals and its language. Dr Thebo, herself a skilled storyteller whose writing has been described as ‘Empathetic, vivid and humane’ by the Sunday Times, discusses the technical difficulties of writing grief, death and loss for young people in an event filled with beautiful writing and frank discussion.
