The Truth and Life of Myth
A Robert Duncan Symposium

April 22-24, 2010

“The surety of the myth for the poet has such force that it operates as a primary reality in itself, having volition. The mythic content comes to us, commanding the design of the poem; it calls the poet into action, and with whatever lore and craft he has prepared himself for that call, he must answer to give body in the poem to the formative will.”
Robert Duncan, “The Truth and Life of Myth”
