“Robinson Jeffers: The Loving Inhumanist” - guest lecture with Andre Naffis-Sahely

A special chance to spend some time with one of the Manchester Writing School’s most exciting visiting fellows, André Naffis-Sahely. Join us for what promises to be an unmissable lecture. 

This lecture will consider The Double Axe and Other Poems (1948), which Jeffers published at a time of rampant US jingoism in the wake of the Allied victory in World War II. The anti-militarism of the book and the author’s uncompromising philosophy of inhumanism eventually led to the downfall of one of the 20th century’s greatest American poets. Why?

Date/Time: Wednesday 23rd January 2019, 4-6pm
