"Re-Interpreting Sylvia Plath's poem, "Daddy" as a tale of Freud, King Brutus, and Conrad's Heart of Darkness"

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Lindenwood University, Belleville, Illinois

5:00 – 6:00 pm. Free and open to the public.

Sylvia Plath's most famous poem, "Daddy", has been interpreted as an Electra complex gone mad for almost fifty years. Plath scholar Julia Gordon-Bramer will present on how she found the real—and quite obvious-- meanings behind "Daddy", as well as the mystical structure upon which this, and every poem in Ariel, is based—opening up exciting new interpretations for all of Plath’s work.

While not essential, attendees are encouraged to bring a copy of Ariel: The Restored Edition (HarperPerennial, 2004), should they want to read along.

Julia Gordon-Bramer is a published and award-winning writer, poet, and professional tarot card reader. She is nearing completion of her book, Fixed Stars Govern A Life: reinterpreting the work of Sylvia Plath through the lens of tarot and mysticism. Gordon-Bramer’s work on Plath appears or is forthcoming in Indiana University NW’s Plath Profiles 3 & 4, the Left Bank Review, and Fat Gold Watch. She teaches World Literature and Humanities at Lindenwood University.

This and all colloquia at Lindenwood are free and open to the public.

Room M205 is located in the main building of the Lindenwood-Belleville campus, directly behind the Lindenwood sign.
