“Who Is Telling the Story? A Few Remarks on the Mythic Imagination”
The wondrous events and magic depicted in myth mirror the creative process
of storytelling in countless ways. Using her own experience as a writer as
well as that of other contemporary and classic writers and poets, Griffin
will describe the often mysterious alchemical process by which words and
rhymes, plots, turns of plots, characters, scenes and even whole landscapes
enter the imaginary realm of the tale, a process which challenges many of
the dualities engrained in modern consciousness.
