Description
Original program notes: The Artist as Trickster: The Creative Personality in Contemporary Society | Lewis Hyde | Weds June 20 1990 Lewis Hyde, the author of The Gift: Imagination and the Erotic Life of Property and a book of poems, This Error is the Sign of Love, is researching Trickster myths. The Trickster, found all over the world, is known as Coyote in North America, Hermes in Greece, Krishna in India, the Monkey in China and Loki in Scandinavia. It is both creative and destructive – lying, cheating and stealing with one hand, and developing language, tools and art with the other. In residence at the Center this summer, Lewis will discuss his investigations and their relationship to the artist’s role in contemporary society.
