Reading Walter de la Mare, 1873-1956:
‘a voice which has no fellow’

 

20th –21st  September 2018, University of Cambridge

By whom, and by what means, was this designed?
The whispered incantation which allows
Free passage to the phantoms of the mind?
                                        . . .
By the delicate, invisible web you wove —
The inexplicable mystery of sound.

 

               — From T. S. Eliot, ‘To Walter de la Mare’

Selling Childhood

 

Arguably, Western culture has been selling the concept of childhood from its inception.  In the eighteenth century, figures like John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau persuaded their peers to buy the new idea that childhood constituted a distinct phase of human development.
