Event description

Description

In this talk, Richard Meier, winner of the inaugural Picador Poetry Prize, and author of Misadventure (Picador, 2012), will explore how a number of Robert Frost's poems seem to concern themselves with the consequences of what might be termed, in psychoanalytic parlance, failures in early containment. The lecture will focus on poems such as The Exposed Nest, Out, Out––, Tree At My Window and For Once, Then, Something, and will draw on concepts developed by a number of psychoanalytic authors, including Donald Winnicott and Wilfred Bion.
