Visionary Children In The Poems Of Thomas Traherne
Date: 07 Jul 2017 - 5:00 to 6:00pm
Venue: Redwing Gallery
This is a talk on the urgent need for so-called superior adults to recapture the inspired child’s vision of the universe.
The 17th century mystical poet Thomas Traherne, largely unknown until the early 2oth century, rediscovered through a series of extraordinary accidents, wrote the first really convincing descriptions in English literature of what it is like to be a child.
