Poets House Presents is a series of 10 minute readings by poets that are live streamed on Twitter & posted on our Archive, Facebook and YouTube on Wednesdays and Fridays at Noon–to keep our community thriving. Free!
Amy Hale reads three poems by Ithell Colquhoun in celebration of her upcoming biography, Ithell Colquhoun: Genius of the Fern Loved Gully (Strange Attractor Press, 2020).
Amy Hale has a PhD in Folklore and Mythology from UCLA and her research and writing ranges from contemporary Cornwall to modern Pagan and occult subcultures in United States and the United Kingdom. She has written about topics as diverse as modern Druidry, Cornish ethnonationalism, Pagan religious tourism, color theory, the occult, and extremist politics in modern Paganism. In 2009 she received a research grant from the Paul Mellon Foundation for her ongoing research into the British Surrealist and esotericist Ithell Colquhoun.
