Event description
Martin Shaw brings myth and story to rouse beauty in troubled times. And introduces his highly anticipated new book, The Night Wages.

About this Event

Martin Shaw is one of the country’s best-loved storytellers and a leading teacher of myth. In troubled times it can be easy to fall into either despair or numbness, and it was a traditional role of the storyteller to rouse awareness of beauty and vocation in such moments. To attend to the grace. In this electrifying evening, Shaw will be bringing myths that remind us of love, grief and the mysteries. To provoke our humanity. He will also be talking about his new book, The Night Wages, a rumination on the vitality of ancient stories in modern times.

ABOUT MARTIN SHAW

Dr Martin Shaw is author of the award-winning Mythteller trilogy (A Branch From The Lightning Tree, Snowy Tower, Scatterlings), he founded the Oral Tradition and Mythic Life courses at Stanford University, whilst being director of the Westcountry School of Myth in the UK. He has introduced thousands of people to mythology and how it penetrates modern life. For twenty years Shaw has been a wilderness rites of passage guide, working with at-risk youth, the sick, returning veterans and many women and men seeking a deeper life. His translations of Gaelic poetry and folklore (with Tony Hoagland) have been published in Orion Magazine, Poetry International, Kenyon Review, Poetry Magazine and the Mississippi Review.

Fresh for 2019 are his new book, The Night Wages, (Cista Mystica Press), and his Lorca translations, Courting the Dawn (with Stephan Harding). Followed by thousands on social media, the small film on his work created by director Bobby Bailey attracted over half a million views. His essay and conversation with Ai Weiwei on myth and migration will be published by the Marciano Arts foundation in early 2019.
