Reclaiming Eve, Lilith, Medusa & Kali: Poetry as Pandoric Praxis

December 10th, 2016

12:30-4:30pm at the Hudson Valley Writers’ Center Sleepy Hollow, NY

 

The feminine encounter with beauty, love and self-sacrifice is typically depicted in a positive, nearly angelic light. However the feminine encounter with self-knowledge has often been depicted as a negative event, bringing the fall of man and worse: a disastrous ruination from the female’s lofty beatific birthright into ugly monstrous creatures who plague all of humanity. Join Amy King for a myth-shattering poetry workshop in which we explore the redemptive mode of embracing the “monstrous ugly” to unveil and broaden the scope of our own “monstrous selves.”
