Poetry and Peace Building

  • Course Dates: Fri 21 September, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Approaching the centenary of the end of the first world war, this day will explore the pastoral role of poetry after trauma, and the power of words to heal the soul.

In the wake of war the ‘pastoral’ language of a green and pleasant land no longer spoke to many people. What Rebecca Chopp has called the ‘poetics of testimony’ often takes a more fragmentary and challenging form, serving a pastoral role by giving voice to inexpressible experience.
