Course Information

uollondon

Therapy through Literature takes as its subject what the psychologist William James described as the predicament of ‘twice-born souls’ – those who have to readjust to experience, following trauma. It looks at crucial versions of life-reappraisal: prose narratives of breakdown and second chance from Charles Dickens to Oliver Sacks; the expressive power of poetry as a form of second life, including Elizabethan sonnet writers, Wordsworth and Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
