Landcapes of the Mind
Monday 7th - Friday 11th April 2014
'Oh the mind, mind has mountains,' Gerard Manley Hopkins famously wrote. We will explore what landscape means to us, both culturally and personally, and the metaphors it generates. How do we store perspectives, paths, directions, borders and how do those particular locations and configurations influence how we think? Spring School offers the opportunity to sample all styles of writing: prose, poetry and script. It is a non-residential week, but students will be offered help in finding suitable accommodation if required. Refreshments, lunch and evening events, with dinner on Friday evening, are included.
This year the course will be convened, and taught, by William Fiennes and four other tutors.
Spring School course fee £300
