Walking with Words: Creativity in Literature and Psychoanalysis

“Literature and psychoanalysis both use words to bring us to our senses.  Through public, confidential, and personal expression, word power evokes feelings and meanings not previously accessible.  In story, poem, and psychoanalytic interpretation, this awakening involves added complexity when the analyst or the patient or both are writers.  Our speakers will address these complexities, using their own work and that of others, with particular emphasis on James Joyce, as a literary expert on human innerness.”
