Emeritus Professor Chris Wallace-Crabbe will discuss the genesis of this long-form poem, The universe looks down. Published in 2005, the poem has been described by Professor Wallace-Crabbe as a ‘quest’ and a ‘difficult and zany epic’, reflecting how people behave when they are thrown together on a journey encountering love, violence, or loss. As Chris has said, ‘a quest, like a life, contains different kinds of people, naive, comic, and villainous … all these kinds of people who are held together by a story, in a story, for a story’.
Hear Professor Wallace-Crabbe as he takes us through this monumental literary work.
