The Hawk Across The Waters: Romanticism as Activism
A Day with Martin Shaw
The day will be a journey into the stirring Celtic myth of Tristan and Isolde, a profoundly powerful story about the many gradations of love, grief and ecstasy. This is a time when a woman can also be a hawk that flies straight from the heart of the sun, a time when a man is enraptured by the bone white moon.
Throughout our time together, Shaw will point us towards the pagan underpinnings of the story, the supreme eloquence of its language, and the sheer joy of letting such a tale have its way with you.
Underpinning it all is the question: in times like these, what on earth could something like Romanticism have to teach us? Could the phrase finally come of age?
Let’s dream into it.
