SOME FIRM CONVICTION : BLAKE AND THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL

Is the Everlasting Gospel an incomplete poem or a verse of intention? Looking at the creative process of expressing ‘the thing that has not been said’, Ryan Whatley will talk on how The Everlasting Gospel and Blakean vision provides a new model for phenomenological theatre and cognitive poetics.

Punctuated with poetry readings as well as a visual diary account of  ‘The Living Priniciple’ (the theatre project that won the Blake Society’s Tithe Grant Award for 2011), the talk will be illustrated by a short scene from the play.

Ryan Whatley was born in Hastings in 1986. Award winner for the Essex Poetry Festival, shortlisted for the Basil Bunting Prize and Bridport Prize, his poems and haiku are published nationally. He was one of the joint winners of the 2011 Blake Society Tithe Grant.

(This talk will immediately follow the Society’s Annual General Meeting)
