Leaving the village, finding the forest — An evening with Martin Shaw

8th November 2018

Dr Martin Shaw is regarded as one of the most profound teachers of myth

of his generation. An award winning writer, he has taught at Stanford and Oxford University. He is founder and director of the West country School of Myth.

“I can still remember the first time I heard Martin Shaw tell a story. The tale that emerged was like a living thing, bounding around, throwing itself at all of us there, listening. I had never heard anything like it before. Martin is a one-off, his work is urgent and necessary.” Paul Kingsnorth, author of The Wake

“Shaw is talking about ancient myths in a new way. He causes the teeth of professors to fall out and the teeth of the young to grow… He is a true master, one of the very greatest storytellers we have.” Robert Bly, author of Iron John
